Tusculum College’s new Pioneer Band Program gets underway on Sunday, August 22. David Price, director of music and special events, is extending invitations to local high school students, faculty and staff and community members to join with Tusculum students in participating in the new Tusculum Band at upcoming football games and other special events.
The Sunday rehearsal will be held in the Annie Hogan Byrd Auditorium. Participants will need to bring their instrument and a lyre (if applicable.)
The schedule will be as follows:
12:30 - 1:00 - Registration
1:00 - 2:45 - Rehearsal
2:45 - 3:30 - Meal
3:30 - 4:30 - Run through
After Sunday, the band practices will be Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4-5:30 p.m. and will also be held at Annie Hogan Byrd in the band room downstairs near the Behan Arena Theater. The times participants will need to be at the games will vary so these times will be communicated a week before each game by email.
Participants will be provided food at the first practice and at the football games and will be provided a band shirt to wear at all events. There are five home games and the dates and game times are as follows:
