Marching Colonels in Band Camp

The Marching Colonels begin their season today with a one week band camp.  The band and guard will be hard at work learning the drill and music to their 2015 field show, based on the Broadway Musical, Newsies.  Band Director Phil Simon invites you to drop in on a rehearsal at any time to see what it takes to put a college marching band on the field.  Mornings we will be in Gies Hall rehearsing music, and afternoons we will be at Munson Field learning drill, or if the weather is bad, in the RAC in the Sidhu School.  

Go to our Facebook page to see who is in the band and view some recent photos of the Marching Colonels in performance.  We hope to see you at our first home game, under the lights, on September 11 at 7:00 pm.
