Band Directors

From the early days of the Cadet band, when a director with adequate musical ability and competent military skill within the Military could not be found, the Military would call upon musicians from the area, providing them with an honorary military title, to direct the band. This practice continued until the mid 1900’s when the Military began to relinquish their ties to the the band. Beginning with Don Lentz, directors came from the School of Music.
