Band Day 2013
Saturday, September 7, 2013
For over 30 years, Butler University has been inviting high
school bands and band directors for instrument-specific master
classes with Butler music faculty and graduate students.
Participants perform at half-time alongside other musicians,
showcasing their talents in front of an energetic Butler Bowl
crowd. Each year, a guest artist on the featured instrument joins
in the fun.
Tubas blew the crowd away in 2011, while the Flutes and Piccolos
took center field in 2012. For 2013, we are proud to feature the
Trombones, with Butler Unversity Professor of Trombone, Jared Rodin.
Join us on Saturday, September 7,
for Band Day 2013!
Of course we want all members of your band to attend, but you
are also welcome to just send your trombones. All students will be
involved in the morning rehearsal, the faculty master-classes and
the on-field massed band performance. There are no student costs
for the day's events, and Butler football game tickets are a great
bargain for parents at the gate (only $12). Come see our newly
renovated stadium and its beautiful "Field Turf" surface!
Music for the day.
