MESSAGE FROM PROFESSOR FALCONE
Congratulations on passing the first round of auditions for the Cornhusker Marching Band! You are part of an elite group that now has the opportunity to become a part of one of the finest college marching bands in the country and perhaps the most visible student organization on the University campus.
There are exciting things ahead for us this season, and I’m anxious to get going. The first round auditions have been outstanding. We’ll have some work to do at band camp to reach our roster limit, so you’ll need to be prepared. It’s very important that you read the information on this web site and respond accordingly. We’re going to be looking for the 300 best performers with the best attitudes that we can put on the field.
For those of you who are joining us as new members, the amount of material, and the pace at which it must be mastered may seem overwhelming. Do the best you can, and remember that you have a large support group of the best people on this campus at your disposal. Don’t be shy about seeking help. Also, there will be those who will try and discourage you from participating. The band is perhaps the best gateway into campus involvement there is. There are typically over 70 different academic majors represented. The band can help you to be a more successful student. You can do it!
I hope that our veterans will continue to hone their skills, and lead by example. The great traditions of the CMB live in you. Your knowledge and experience are vital to our success. We are a family; be there for each other!
Again, congratulations for making it to this level. You should take great pride in your accomplishment, for there are many talented individuals that we could not invite to camp. I look forward to meeting you in August and to helping this year’s version of “THE PRIDE OF ALL NEBRASKA” become the ultimate in collegiate marching bands!
