Homecoming 2020

Terps Alumni BandThank you to every alumni and family member who made it out to Homecoming 2019! We had a huge, wonderful turnout thanks to your support.

This year’s spooky Homecoming will be Saturday, October 31st where we take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. We hope to see you there!

Greetings from Dr. Andrea Brown

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.
