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.

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.
