SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Delphos native Andy Wieging will end his collegiate marching band career in grand fashion when he takes the field at the BCS Championship Game on Monday as a senior in the University of Notre Dame Marching Band.

Representing the Fighting Irish has allowed Wieging to play at iconic stadiums and venues such as Yankee Stadium, Soldier Field, the Alamo and Dublin, Ireland, to name a few.

As a member of the band, he has also performed with the classic rock band Chicago and cult favorite OK GO, having also appeared in a music video with them.

Although the marching season is coming to a close, Wieging will remain active musically as a member of the band for the school’s hockey team and will tour throughout Europe with the Notre Dame Symphonic Band this spring.

Wieging began marching in the band for St. John’s in eighth grade under the direction of Jan Hare.

He is the son of Bob and Lorraine Wieging and grandson of Jean Best and Alfreda Wieging.
