The Band Plays On

I just wanted to throw a little praise to the band. You guys are doing a fantastic job this year, The sounds are incredible for a band of that size. Your new Band Director seems to have things on the right track. Can't imagine when this band hits 200 plus and marching in one of those Thursday or Bowl parades. Anyway, a well deserved thanks to you all and keep the sounds coming. ;D

I agree, what a difference a few years make. At this pace the band will be off the charts in a few years. Great Job.

GO OWLS!

The band has never reached its cap. In in the course listing the class has a cap of 200 people. With only about a quarter of that the band is open to new members is as always actively recruting.

As for the scholarships, those might be going away. Hopefully not for a few more years.

thanks for the info...i was under the assumption the reason it wasnt bigger was that there was not enough funding in place...at least in years past that has been an issue...most big school offer scholarships to band members...im sure there are some local HS band members that would love to go to FAU for free in exchange of serving in the band...maybe the new director has plans to get "out and about"...you guys look pretty dang good...

I dont know of any school that gives full rides to marching band members, unless they get a scholarship as a music major. Most schools offer a few hundred dollars, depending on your postion and year in the band.

Yeah, thats what i was referring to - music majors...im curious as to why we dont "recruit" in that area...the music department at FAU has always been a "low key" department...
