Alumni Needed for Maryland Basketball Pep Band December 21, 2012 - January 17, 2013

This is an 'all call' for your participation with the Basketball Pep Band.  From December 21st - January 17th, we are inviting Maryland Band Alumni to bring your instruments and perform with the Maryland Pep Band for all Men's and Women's Basketball home games.  This window is for a limited time – only until January 17th – so take advantage!



Alumni Band - we will not be allowed to bring in the strollers through the tunnel this year, but we'd like to keep the Baby portion at the back of the band.  We are working on it.  If you have an idea for the little ones, please email us at president@umbao.org

Community Band Concert April 4 at CSPAC - All Welcome

On Wednesday evening, April 4 at 8:00 PM, the MARYLAND COMMUNITY BAND will present a concert with the U of MD University Band in the Dekelboum Concert Hall of the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center on campus in College Park.  Each group will present about 35 minutes of music on this annual free and open to the public concert.  I am extremely proud of the 75-member MCB for their hard work and amazing progress over the years.  Being able to present a program with this level of difficulty is proof of their dedication and love for performing great music.  Last year many of you were able to attend when we presented Emerson Head and the trumpet trio and I hope you can be with us again this year.
