Fall 2011 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
Pep Band: Comprised mostly of flutes (piccolo), clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, baritones, tubas, and percussionists, this performing group will provide music for a variety of events on campus throughout the year. These performances will at times be athletic, academic, or extracurricular in nature. This is a one-credit course which will meet once each week. Our scheduled time for rehearsals is 7pm-8pm on Thursday evenings. Due to the nature of the unusual schedules for these events, there will be some flexibility with required performances.
Music will be provided.
