Whats going on with the Band???

There is a new director, fresh from FSU. He just finished his doctorate. Right now it looks like we will at least double in size, we are shooting for 100 members this season. Also there is some talk about attempting to play for a road game. Practice starts the week before fall semester, so if Fan Fest is the weekend before school starts then I would expect to see us there.

Members increasing! That's good to hear. Hopefully you'll eventually get to the 100 mark.

Hey all, FAUTuba is away for the rest of the summer so I guess its up to me to respond.

So far we are still shooting to be around 100 or so. Everyone who is currently in band is recruiting like crazy.

The new band director, Dr. Murray, just moved to Boca about 2 weeks ago and a couple of the KKY (Kappa Kappa Psi, the National Honorary Band Fraternity. We are in the process of starting a chapter at FAU and should be up and running in the Fall. It is co-ed so I'm in it as well.) including myself and Dr. Prescott helped Dr. Murray move in. This was the first time I met him but from what I can tell he is very excited about the upcoming year and he seems like a great guy.

I know that we will have members of KKY and the band at most if not all the orientations this summer and will continue to recruit.

Thanks for supporting us and I hope you all enjoy this years shows. I'll keep you guys updated on anymore news.

P.S. This is a picture of Dr. Murray and Dr. Prescott while we were moving him in! And yes he plans on getting rid of that Oregon Marching Band shirt ( I gave him hell for that ;) )

"D" thanks for the up date and for the future updates. Good luck to you all and the new Director. The KKY sounds like a good way to get this thing moving in a big way.

Yes KKY will be a GREAT thing to make FAU's band program grow and move it in the right direction to become a GREAT band program. This is a great organization and is meant to help the band program grow and succed. I am the a Secretary for KKY and will be helping the historian and writing all articles that go to the national KKY newsletter. We wrote our constitution and have put in the paperwork to the school to become an offial club. We are determind to make FAU known to all!!!! GO OWLS!!!
