GREEN BAY (WKOW) — UW Band director Mike Leckrone is getting ready for his final performance after 50 years.
He and the band performed for a crowd of thousands in Green Bay on Sunday.
Leckrone is retiring at the end of the school year, after transforming the UW Marching Band program and creating Badgers traditions like the 5th Quarter.
His 45th and final spring Varsity Band Concert starts Thursday. The last show is Saturday at the Kohl Center. The performances sold out earlier this year.
