This week, a behind-the-scenes look at the pride of Minnesota–the Golden Gophers Marching Band. It’s one of several athletics bands at the U but by far the most visible. Assistant Director of Bands/Director of Marching and Athletics Bands Elizabeth (Betsy) Kerns McCann tells us about the process of auditioning for the Marching Band and the role it and the other athletics bands play in promoting Gophers Athletics.
The Marching Band is performing two concerts this weekend at Northrop Auditorium on the U’s Minneapolis campus. Ticket information is available here.
