Greetings CMB Alumni!
Summer is winding down and our sights are set squarely on the 2017-18 Cornhusker Marching Band season. We have some fun things planned, including our Alumni Reunion Weekend which kicks of the year at our first game on September 2.
Last season started with a bang with five consecutive performance weekends including our full band trip to Northwestern. October and November were a little more sane and featured an exhibition performance at the NSBA State Marching Band Contest Lincoln site at Seacrest Field. Our trip to Nashville for the Music City Bowl was a lot of fun, and for the second year in a row we added a new Bowl to our long and prestigious list. It was a special treat for me when former Director Craig Cornish visited our rehearsal at MacGavock HS in Nashville. It filled up my heart standing in front of the Cornhusker Band with him once more!
I hope you’ll all be able to join us for the Alumni Reunion. The BAA has some cool new things planned, and as always it’ll be a great time catching up with our fellow Bandsmen from across the decades. I have a special remembrance of Mike Veak in mind for our halftime performance (if I can pull it off…) The deadline is fast approaching, so don’t miss out!
Thanks and GO BIG RED!
