Princeton University Band student members and alumni performed at an impromptu spot in front of Blair Hall Friday afternoon, as the university’s annual reunion events are warming up for tonight’s and tomorrow’s big events. The group performs as a “scramble band” during sports events and other activities, which means they rely more on entropy than order.

Nearly 25,000 alumni and university community members are expected to be on campus for events that include private talks and class reunion parties, and well as Saturday’s very orange and black P-Rade, which is open to the public and runs from 2-5 p.m. The University Orchestra performs a lawn concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, on Finney and Campbell fields, followed by fireworks.
