Logan also is scheduled to be part of pre-Games performances at the Olympic Square in Tianjin, at Tianjin Olympic Stadium (following a preliminary soccer match) and at the Olympic Cultural Square in Beijing.
The band and color guard also will perform at one of the Olympic Live Stages in Beijing before televised coverage of the opening ceremonies.
