Help Support the MSOM Instrument Fund in 2021!
Here is the MSOM Giving Day support schedule (all hours are Eastern Standard Time). Help raise money for the Instrument Fund by participating during these special hours!
We hope everyone had a great time at the Alumni Band Virtual Tailgate. We want to thank Dave Coakley, Steve Rosenheim and Paul Deafenbaugh for leading our Truck panel, and Hank Aaman, Steve Berkowitz, Ray Boyer, Fred Heath, Martin Horn, Alicia Ocando, Brenda Ocando, Dotty Reitwiesner, Mike Resnick, Frances Travers Spiegler, Dick Taylor, Delores and countless others for contributing stories. Paul recapped the night perfectly by noting that it doesn't matter when you marched or how you Trucked, it's the connections and friendships that matter.
The Bands of America Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship is being held at Maryland Stadium. Help the MSOM host the event, and stay for the MSOM exhibition! (Times approximate. Details forthcoming.)

Greetings, Band Alumni!
I hope this message finds you all enjoying a wonderful summer so far!
Now that I have been “official” for one entire month, I wanted to reach out to say, “Hello!” and to give you a few updates of what has been happening in the Band Office.
The month has been filled with meeting a lot of folks and trying to learn as much as possible about all things MSOM. I was very grateful to have the opportunity to meet with the UMBAO officers mid-June. There was lots of ground to cover, but lots of exciting opportunities are ahead! In the coming months we will be bringing you all more details about this year’s Homecoming celebration (it’s our 110th year!) as well as opportunities to interact with the current members of MSOM during Early Week. You as alumni are an integral part of the past, present, and future success of the Maryland Bands and we look forward to strengthening the ties that bind. I consider meeting and interacting with the alumni a very important aspect of my position and look forward to meeting and working with all of you.
