Hey everyone! My name is Beyan, and I play the Horn. I'm a member of the class of 2024, and I'm majoring in Biological Sciences in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. I'm also the Head Manager of the Big Red Marching Band this year! That means I organize all of our events, help manage the budget, and send lots (and lots) of emails. Feel free to email me at email@example.com with any questions about the band! Now here are some important things I would like you to know about the BRMB:
- We encourage EVERYONE to audition! There is no musical or marching experience necessary. Whether you were the drum major of your high school marching band or never touched an instrument in your life, we gladly welcome you to our Big Red Family!
- The time commitment is whatever you want to make it! Once you join you are by no means obligated to come to everything. We understand Cornell provides a challenging workload, so come to rehearsals whenever you can. It’s always a fun way to destress!
- Missed the first couple of rehearsals, or the whole first semester? Don’t worry, it’s never too late to join!
- We encourage diversity and welcome anyone to join! We hope to see you soon :)
