Hello Buckeye Nation!
We have a few different things to talk about today, with those things being the announcement of the 2015 – 2016 Squad Leaders and the OSU Bands Night that is coming up.
The Squad Leaders for the 2015 – 2016 season are Justin Castle (Head Snare), Brendan Todahl (Assistant Snare), Dan Hays (Bass Drum), Maile Shield (Cymbals), and Alex Repke (Tenor Drums). We would like to congratulate these individuals and let everyone know that they are excited to work with the incoming candidates and veteran members alike! Make sure to head over to the Contact tab on the site if you need to get in contact with any of these individuals, as this is where their email addresses will be listed. Our percussion instructor Mark Reynolds also has his email address listed if you are interested in speaking with him at any point in time.
OSU Bands Night, formerly known as Junior/Senior Night, will be taking place on Sunday, April 19th from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Any junior or senior in high school is invited to come and spend some time with current members of the band, ask questions, tour the facilities, get to know the staff here at Ohio State, and get a taste of the different musical ensembles that Ohio State has to offer. This will include a presentation about different groups within the school of music, a performance by the Ohio State Spring Athletic Band, and student leaders and staff from the Ohio State Marching Band on site to answer any questions you may have. Parents are more than welcome to attend with students!
Students can register on the official Ohio State Marching Band webpage, and find additional information regarding some of the logistics of the event.
We apologize for the short notice, but we will not be having our 7:00 – 9:00 rehearsal in the band center this evening. Rehearsals will resume at the normal time next Wednesday, April 8th.
