Hello from the UNH Wildcat Marching Band!
This email contains information about ALL the Department of Music ensembles, but is primarily about marching band because it’s the only ensemble that you need to commit to before school starts.
[We apologize if you receive this more than once; we don’t want to miss anyone!]
It is time to start looking forward to this fall and the 2017 edition of the Wildcat Marching Band! Whether you are a returning member, new member, or still thinking about it, this e-mail will have lots of information for you. Please read on!
First off, please bookmark our website at http://bands.unh.edu/ and join our Facebook group . These will be updated throughout the summer with information about all of the UNH Bands. The WMB in particular uses the bands website as a communication hub – it has all of our forms, calendars, and other information. One of the most useful pages is the Forms Page .
Why should I join the Wildcat Marching Band?
Members of the marching band say it’s one of the best decisions they made as an incoming freshman! To see some reasons why, check out our recruiting video . Also see Top Ten Reasons to Join the Wildcat Marching Band which also appears as a Buzzfeed list .
The University of New Hampshire’s annual Wind Band Invitational will be held on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017. Seven high school bands from New England will participate in a day of clinics and performances on the UNH campus. This year’s invited schools are Marshwood, Sanborn Regional, Kearsarge Regional, Winnacunnet, Campbell, Somersworth and Exeter. Participating ensembles will receive a 40 minute clinic from both Dr. Boysen and a guest composer/ conductor. Each ensemble will be able to observe the performances of the other visiting bands along with a performance by the UNH Wind Symphony. Recent guest artists have included Ryan J. Nowlin, Brant Karrick, Daniel Bukvich, and Mark Camphouse. It is truly a great opportunity for young musicians and we are looking forward to seeing you there!
We are very excited to be hosting composer/ conductor Dr. Timothy Mahr from St. Olaf College as our guest clinician this year. You can read more about Dr. Mahr in his biography below. Each group will have the opportunity to work with Dr. Mahr on one of his compositions. We hope you will join us after all of the clinics at 8pm in Johnson Theatre for a special concert with the UNH Wind Symphony entitled “The Wisconsin Connection,” featuring Dr. Mahr conducting his own Symphony No. 1.
Congratulations to the following students, who were selected as student leaders for the 2017 Wildcat Marching Band!
