Dear band student,
I am very excited about beginning year two at Lyon College! The marching band, symphonic winds, and jazz band were a huge success in 2015-2016, and we have many plans for the 2016-2017 season. Please review the band schedule for early week rehearsals. These are all required for band membership. Freshmen will need to complete their S.O.A.R. event earlier in the summer so that they don't miss band rehearsal on August 11. When registering for classes, make sure to list MUS 120 Marching Band.
There are no fees for band membership. Lyon will pay for travel, supplies, and all uniform expenses. When you arrive on August 5, please go to your respective dorm for check-in. We will meet as a band for the first time that evening.
Dress appropriately for all rehearsals. This includes shorts, light clothing, and athletic shoes. Avoid wearing sandals, as we will be marching every day. Please contact me if you have any needs or concerns prior to arriving on campus.
We will be performing two shows this fall: the Music of Queen and the Ladies of Rock. I can't wait to see you all. Have a productive, restful, and--most of all--fun summer!
