Band Bulletin #7: 9/26-10/1 — OSU SKULL SESSION

Fall is here at last!  After an enjoyable Homecoming game — and first performance of “Script Bees” — under our belts, we now enter the latter half of our season… focusing on our new STAR WARS SHOW!

This Saturday, we travel to Columbus for the great honor of performing at the OSU Skull Session, prior to the game vs. Rutgers (more detail below).

We have much yet to accomplish this season… let’s keep working together!
