Our goal at Band Alumni Society is to give back to the students. The Engagement and Excellence campaign is a multi-year effort by UMBAS to ensure that students of the University of Minnesota can share their music around the state, the region and the country.
This year, UMBAS made it possible for bands to travel to New York City for the NIT, Tampa Bay for the Frozen Four, Las Vegas for the Football Season Opener, Lincoln, Nebraska and Houston, Texas for the Meineke Car Care Bowl.
Thank you to the over 75 donors that contributed directly, the hundreds of folks that attended our viewing parties, participated in Homecoming, and the countless current and former University of Minnesota musicians that played at over 30 events this year that raised awareness of the importance of music to the broader University of Minnesota community.
