High School Band Day Volunteers Needed

The band is reviving high school band day this year on Saturday, September 16, for the Gopher Football home game. We have 10 high school bands who are coming to play at halftime with the UMMB who will need some of us "wiser" U of M Band Folk to escort them around campus for rehearsals and onto the field for halftime. This is a great chance to help with recruitment for the UMMB and to inspire younger band students to continue their musical journeys!

Aquatennial Torchlight Parade - 2017

07/19/2017 7:00 pm

Come join the Alumni Band for the Aquatennial Torchlight Parade!

Sign-Up: If interested, please sign up here: https://goo.gl/forms/Yt4tqJ6dVSLFKYDn1

When: Line-up is at 7:00pm on July 19; I will be there at 6:00pm to check us in, so we got our call time pushed back a bit. Step-off is at 8:30pm. Aquatennial staff tend to be a bit more strict, so do your best to be there by 7:00pm. I know that's sometime difficult, so if you're a bit late, sneak in quietly. We are Unit 8 In the parade so we will be fairly early (and right before PJ Fleck, is what I'm told).

Where: We will be meeting near the grassy area in front of Dunwoody College in downtown Minneapolis. Note, the Dunwoody Blvd exit closes at 6:00pm.

Uniform: Let's go with Maroon on top, and whatever color shorts/pants you would like.

Waivers: Please fill out the attached waiver and send it to Brooke at mdcintern@mplsdowntown.com. If you do not have scanning capabilities, feel free to bring a hard copy, but the preference is email. I will not have hard copies on site.

Length: The parade is relatively short, though I do not have an actual distance.

Music: We will be alternating between cadences, the Rouser, and MN March. I will not be bringing music on site, so if you need it please go to: http://www.skiumah.org/schoolsongs
