NOBLE — Want to see Notre Dame’s marching band play when it visits Oklahoma later this month?

Even if you don’t have a ticket to the Oct. 27 OU-Notre Dame football clash on Owen Field, you can hear the Irish’s “Victory March” and watch the band perform on gameday — just a few miles south of Norman.

The Notre Dame band will practice on Noble High School’s football field in a rehearsal that is free and open to the public, Noble High band director Fred Queen wrote in an email to the school district’s employees.

According to Queen’s email, the Irish band will rehearse from approximately 1:15 to 2:30 p.m. on gameday in Noble’s stadium, which is in the midst of a massive renovation.

The Noble football team is playing its first season on new artificial turf, and an impressive new field house is under construction just north of the field.

Noble High School is located at 4601 East Etowah Road.

Full disclosure: I’m a Noble native and Noble High alumnus. My grandmother, parents and many friends still live there. If any event this exciting has happened in my hometown over my lifetime, I sure can’t remember it. I can’t stress how neat this is for the school and the city. If you decide to visit the Rose Rock Capital of the World on Oct. 27, be sure to eat at Kendall’s and order the chicken fried steak. You won’t regret it.
