Band Day Information:

 

What you need:

Bring an instrument! If you are in the colorguard, you should also bring an instrument. Percussion should bring their own instrument as well. That will be the best way to participate in the game. If you do not bring an instrument, you may still sit with your section, but playing is more fun.

Game tickets are provided for every student. No need to buy one yourself.

Wear maroon! It may get cold, so a jacket might be useful too. Music for most of our stand tunes can be found at the WT Marching Band site by following the link. I recommend either printing it and putting it in a flip folder or putting it on your phone. We use much of our show music for the stand tunes. There will be some more we will give to you on Saturday at 4:30.

When things happen: 

4:15 Find your way to the Northwest part of the stands. Find your seat. Our students will be there to greet you and show you where to go.

4:30pm play some music in the stands.

5:00pm The WT band will go to the practice field for a brief practice and to set up for our field entry. At 5:30 you should be back in the stands ready to watch the preshow.

6pm Game Start

8:45 (approximately) Game Ends

During the game we will play several times. Usually just a small bit of music, but it happens very quickly. Have fun, but only play your instrument when directed to do so.

Looking forward to seeing you here!
