2007 Marching Owls

Well everyone wants to know what the marching band is up to, so I'll give the run down
  • The band was unable to attend the spring game because the director, Dr. Murray had a previous engagement with an honor band out of town. Also, there was a Wind Ensemble concert the same day that many members played in.
  • Leadership auditions are Mon.(4/23) and guard and drum-line auditions are Sat.(4/28)
  • The band is planning on attending the Fall Fan Fest as usual, it concludes our preseason training.
  • As of now we'll be playing at all 5 home games, and two away games.(UF and FIU)
  • I don't know if its this season or next, but music education majors will be required to take a year of marching band, adding to our numbers.

Thats all I can think of now. If you guys have any other question, leave them and I'll do what I can to answer.

Thanks for the update tuba. It was amazing last year the sounds you all were putting out. You guys really do a great job for such a young program and I'm sure we will all look forward to this coming fall.

Not really sure until preseason training starts. I'd be happy if we saw 75 members take the field for the MTSU game.

Last two seasons we were about 50-55.

The prerequisite for music ed majors is pretty standard for collegiate bands.

then 75 would be phenominal....what types of instrument increase(s) would you say primarily? Horns? Percussion? Both?

Well the Drum line has increased by a few members and should be a pretty nice line of 15. The guard also looks like its going to be pretty solid this season too. So in order to stay proportionate the the wind section would pic up the most members, and I'm sure things will work out that way
