Does anyone have/can point me to some high quality top-down performance pics? As awesome/convenient as powerandclass.info is, most of the pictures are too small for me to blow up. This would be for the purpose of printing them out and showing them to an audience, and I'm pretty sure Powerpoint is not an option.

I knew something important would happen right after I graduate. [12 Feb 2008|11:04pm]

So I had to miss the meeting, but I heard the big news via e-mail/marching band tech.

So how about that Chancellor Cole? Can't we keep him? Please? XD

So, we've officially passed the half-way point of the season. This makes me wonder...

What is your FAVORITE part of the season so far?

and while we're at it...

What is your FAVORITE part of the show? (particular point in the music or drill?)

Hey all, just a quick reminder that we will be parking all of the Band Day busses in Lot 33 (that lot you parked in for Band Camp), so make sure that you DO NOT park there Saturday morning.

I don't imagine anyone who will be passing through the Northeast/Sylvan area tomorrow morning will have room to pick up a wayward bando traveler?

PPS: Feel free to friend/e-mail/IM me and ask me any questions, since I've been around for a while and like to talk band =) Here's a link to my band camp survival post from last year (I didn't want to repeat myself): http://community.livejournal.com/ummb/23598.html#cutid1

Hey All.
I've been putzin around and noticed some questions that haven't really been fully addressed.
The "newsletter that should be coming in the mail" is the m-bander which freshman may have gotten at the summer info sessions or earlier in the summer.
That has our schedule for the year (which is still very tenative so keep weekends clear) as well as a smart packers list.
We will be moving into the dorms on the second to last day of band camp. Don't worry about the details precisly, just show up and hold on for the ride, we'll guide you the whole way.
The only detail I would like to stress is to please don't bring everything you own unless you have a car you can keep it in/transport it in. The band is run by a student staff who is happy to assist in moving your luggage for you but we have a large band this year and even 400 bags is a lot to handle, never mind if everyone brings a whole dorm set.
You will have Friday afternoon, Saturday afternoon, sunday and monday to settle into campus and work out with your family as to how/when your stuff could be brought in.
Music was sent out today so hopefully it should be arriving to the far flung reaches of the globe by the end of the week.

I just got back from some time with Mr. Parks and the drum majors and we're all in agreement that this has the makings of a really terrific year...can't wait for it to get started!

Hey everyone!

My name's Elisa, and I'll be a freshman in the UMMB in 25 days! I play the alto sax and the clarinet, but I'm marching sax. I was hoping that you could maybe give some survival tips for band camp and such, and if anyone knew whether we have to sign up for the early move in meal plan or if it's covered, what day we're moving in our own dorms, and any other suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hey, this community has been pretty dead this summer, so I'm going to remind y'all that it's here by asking an annoying question.

Do we get early move-in to dorms this year? I noticed we have a game on the 1st again, but I don't see the mBander on powerandclass.info.

Hey Band,

The Pride of Duquesne University Marching Band is being reformed into a seated pep band starting this fall, and the band is pretty upset about it. If you like marching band and think its a worthwhile experience, take a minute to sign this petition. Members of the band will be meeting with the athletic director in a few weeks to discuss the situation and to try and get their marching band back! Take a second to help them prove that there is support out there for marching bands.

Dear marching band,

How is your spring semester? Mine is fine. I have fallen sadly out of the band loop.

We have rehearsal for Boston Pops soon, right? Tomorrow? Does anyone know what's going on? Oh, and are we still being required to get uniforms cleaned, and if so... would anyone mind bringing mine in with yours, I'll tip! -_-

Sincerely,
Your loyal but dazed, currently flag-spinning flutist.
