Support the MSOM Instrument Fund

Alumni — are you ready for Giving Day?

Giving Day is the University of Maryland's annual 24-hour fundraising marathon, raising much needed support for schools, colleges, programs and initiatives across the university. You can help the Mighty Sound of Maryland by contributing to their fundraiser on March 8th!

Their dream is to buy eighteen new sousaphones. Their goal for Giving Day is to raise $35,000 so they can purchase five.

UMBAO Group Tickets - Women vs. Ohio State 2/5 at 4pm

Hey Band Alums — we thought it would be fun to get a group together to attend a Maryland Women's basketball game.

The Terps are playing #2 Ohio State on Sunday, 2/5 at 4pm. Group tickets are just $10 each for general admission. Reserve your tickets at the link below, and we will email you an invoice. Tickets must be ordered and paid for by Wed, 2/1. We will email your e-tickets and our section number a day or two before the game.

Fans are encouraged to wear PINK for this annual Play4Kay breast cancer awareness game. Pink pompoms and ribbons will be handed out to fans.

This is a great way to get together and hang out with friends and family — no playing, no pressure, and free parking at Xfinity!

Help Build the Marching Band Student Scholarship Fund

The Mighty Sound of Maryland is thrilled to announce its first endowed fund to support scholarships for marching band students of all majors! Please help us grow this scholarship fund with your generous donation today. Every gift made in Fall 2022 will help increase the size of the first student scholarship awards made in Fall 2023.

Learn More and Donate

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.
