An annual tradition for the entire family! With over 320 members, you’ll see and hear “The Pride of Minnesota” in this lively, joyful, and participatory indoor concert featuring halftime favorites and more. One of the most exciting and highly visible organizations on campus, the University of Minnesota Marching Band, under the direction of Professor Betsy McCann and Dr. John Leonard, provides enthusiastic support to the University’s athletic programs, and represents the University at events throughout the year.
“They’re the unsung heroes … of the sports calendar. Their beats fill the breaks between the plays on the field; they keep fans glued to their seats at halftime; and without them, the ‘Rouser’ would fail to rouse.” —Minnpost
