The University Bands Alumni Chapter serves more than 2,500 band alumni from the following: Marching Golden Flashes, Flasher Brass, Wind Ensemble, Concert Bands, Communiversity Band and Jazz Ensembles. The University Bands Alumni Chapter works closely with the School of Music Athletic Band Director and Director of Bands to coordinate annual Homecoming festivities, which include marching in the parade and a special alumni band half-time performance. During the winter, the alumni chapter hosts a social for all bands at the conclusion of the Winter Concert. In the spring, the chapter hosts a Flasher Brass Reunion in conjunction with a spring basketball game. Even if you don’t march or play anymore, you will have fun socializing with chapter members.
