Help the Mighty Sound of Maryland get the Best Band Van in the Land

The band has just launched a new crowdfunding event to raise funds for a new Band Van, which they desperately need. 

Director Rich Sparks is excited about the effort.  "Campus has invited us to raise funds on this campus-sponsored fundraising event online.  We have spent a great deal of time talking about this with the new Leadership of the Marching Band, and we are confident that this program can work for us.  As a result of our working with the campus Development Office on this project, we have their full attention for the first time in my 30 years here on campus."  

The program launched on April 18th, and will close on May 18th.  Donors should donate in the specific name of a current band member.  If you don't know a current band member, please donate in the name of L. Richmond Sparks.  For more information about the program, or to donate, please go to:

Conductor & Musicians Wanted for Washington Metro Gamer Symphony Orchestra

Are you a gamer? Do you get an adrenaline rush when you hear the music from your favorite game? Then how would you like to play the music from your favorite game?

Some of the founding members of UMD’s Gamer Symphony Orchestra have (finally) aged out of the group, and are putting together an ensemble to continue the mission at the community level. The Washington Metro Gamer Symphony Orchestra is officially incorporated, and ready to start rehearsals in July.

But they need one important thing. A Conductor! They’re able to offer a small stipend at the start, and there is the potential for growth as the ensemble matures. See more information and review the application.

They have approximately 50 musicians to start, but will gladly welcome more. Rehearsals will start this July in Rockville. More information about membership.
