The 2008 Hoffman Estates High School Symphonic Winds' performance of a John Philip Sousa march, "Foshay Tower," will be used as part of the soundtrack for a segment on the Travel Channel show "Monumental Mysteries" at 8 p.m. Friday, July 4. The show looks at America's most extraordinary monuments and reveals the stories behind them. In the July 4 episode, the story behind the building of Foshay Tower in Minneapolis will be featured. Robert Erickson, the Hoffman Estates High School band director, said he was contacted by the Travel Channel a while ago, but recently received word that the segment was going to air. The school was contacted after a representative from the Travel Channel watched a May 2008 performance of "Foshay Tower" on YouTube.
