Alumni Band Wind Ensemble Performance

As part of our 115th Homecoming festivities, the Huskie Marching Band invites all alumni back to campus to participate in two special performance celebrations.

In addition to Saturday's annual Fill the Field event at Huskie Stadium, all School of Music and Huskie Marching Band alumni are invited to perform with the NIU Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Thomas Bough. This concert is being given in the beautiful Boutell Memorial Concert Hall at 7:00 PM on Friday, October 7.

Alumni musicians will have the opportunity to join forces with current NIU Wind Ensemble students to perform Frank Ticheli's exciting classic Vesuvius. Former NIU Huskie Marching Band Drum Major and NIU School of Music alumnus Lt Col Bryan Miller will serve as guest conductor for this special performance.

Alumni performers should arrive at 5:40 p.m., rehearsal will begin at 6 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7 p.m. Performers should wear concert black or all black clothing. Instrument cases and personal items will be stored in MB161.

Concert tickets are available here. Performers do not need to purchase a ticket.

The concert will also be streamed on the NIU School of Music’s YouTube channel
