Setauket Elementary Advanced Band Heads to Citi Field. With about 100 members, Setauket Elementary School's advanced band will play "The Star Spangled Banner" at a Mets game at Citi Field. The performance is set for June 16 during a game against the Chicago Cubs. Under the direction of Rich Wiederman, it's the second year in a row that the band has achieved this honor, which is normally reserved for high school and collegiate groups. "They noted how impressed they were with the students and not only graciously extended an invitation to us to perform again, but also waived the audition process based on our track record," Wiederman said.
