Members of the Cornhusker Marching Band perform during the 2015 exhibition at Memorial Stadium. The 2017 exhibition is 7 p.m. Aug. 18.

The Cornhusker Marching Band's annual exhibition performance is 7 p.m. Aug. 18 at Memorial Stadium.

The performance will include a preview of the first halftime show of the 2017 football season, favorite Husker songs and a "drill down" contest in which band members follow rapid marching instructions to try to be the last person on the field.

The event is free and open to the public. Attendees can enter through Gates 3 and 11 starting at 6 p.m.

Following the exhibition, incoming freshmen at Nebraska will participate in a tunnel walk and gather for a photo on the "N" at midfield.

The Cornhusker Marching Band resides in the Glenn Korff School of Music. For more information, click here.
