Dotty Reitwiesner ‘78 generously established the Marching Band Student Support Endowment with a gift of just over $50,000. Beginning in Fall 2023, this endowment will produce annual scholarship awards that support educational expenses or expenses that may prohibit ongoing participation in the marching band. This endowment is the first of its kind in that it is open to MSOM students of all majors at the University of Maryland.

Support the MSOM Instrument Fund

We crushed it last year! Are you ready to do it again?

On Giving Day, UMBAO is joining forces with MSOM to help raise money for the Mighty Sound of Maryland Instrument Fund. Because of your support last year, the Maryland band program was able to purchase over 30 new instruments, replacement parts, repairs, and even a new sound system for rehearsals!

Virtual Trivia Night

 Virtual Trivia Night

Who?  Maryland Band alumni, family, and friends

What?  Virtual Trivia! Topics include pop culture, history, literature, math, science, and a sprinkling of Maryland Band trivia. Game play consists of four rounds of questions with three bonus rounds in between. Questions increase in difficulty and value during each round from 1 to 10 points. At the end of each round is a bonus question that uses a wager system. The hosts will read the round of questions, so it is recommended to have scratch paper available to make notes. Teams will then be sent to their breakout room where the full list questions will be provided, and teams can discuss and submit their answers.

When?  Sunday, February 27, 2022
