We are thrilled to have you and your students with us for our 3rd Annual CMB Band Day at the University of Louisville! Attached are parts for our halftime selection – Carry On My Wayward Son, arranged by Ken Dye. Please have your students prepare this and bring their music and flip folder with them to the game. For Color Guard members, please direct them to this link to see a video of the work they should prepare: http://uoflbands.com/special-events/band-day/2015-band-day-color-guard-work/
The game kickoff time is at 12:30pm, making for an abnormally early call time for us! The parking lot will open at 6:00am with registration running from 6:30-7:15am, followed by our combined rehearsal starting at 7:30am in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Please also pass along to your students to wear dark jeans for the performance to be worn with a red long-sleeved “Band Day” shirt that will be provided at registration.
We will send a detailed itinerary and parking instructions early this week once we have confirmation on various gate numbers and parking lots to be used throughout the day.
Many thanks for your support of this event! We anticipate a combined band of approximately 600 performers on the field for halftime!!!
Please don't hesitate to contact myself or Mark Lynn if you have any questions!
