Flutes at Band Camp

Band members old and new practice basic line marching during band camp the week before fall classes start.



Flutes

Claire Schiefelbein and Lyra Liu

With our sassy dance moves and parading shimmies, the flutes keep the band looking good. Ithaca may be COLD, but the flutes are always HOTT. Our ability to transform nouns like amoeba, peacock, and chopsticks into verbs ensures that we are simply the best and that no one has more fun.

Clarinets

Kristen Ajmo and Brandon Quinlan

Kristen Ajmo

The clarinet section is an integral part of the band. The drum major fears us, the flute section wants to dance like us, and everyone else is generally too afraid to make eye contact. Clarinets are known for their sarcasm and sharp wit, booty-shaking, general dislike of anything flute, and on occasion, proceedings with the Ithaca Police Department.

Saxes

Katherine Curtis

From hot cocoa after cold Tuesday night practices to corn nuggets at the Nines, being a Big Red Sax means a lot more than PE credit - it's lots of good times and great friends.

Trumpets

Mary Amper

Mary Amper

The Loudest, Biggest, Craziest, section in the Ivy League. We pride ourselves on being the best, no matter what the metric is. If you don't find your hair tingling when the Trumpets are around - check your pulse, you might be dead.

Trombones

Alex Fernandez and Kevin Juarez-Leon

Kevin Juarez-Leon Alex Fernandez

When trumpets in this band appear
To menace all our fun and cheer
What hero should then appear
To bring us to our precious...chocolate fountain...

Slide of Lightning
Sound of Thunder
Drinking all the table under
Underbone......Under- Under- Underbone!!!
Un-der-bone!

Percussion

Theo Richardson and Julie Kapuvari

Julie Kapuvari

The drumline could have gone solo a long time ago, but we like to keep the band around for tradition-- and to make it clear how awesome we are by comparison. We rock hard, head-bang, dance, and stick click like nobody's business. Beware of ninja.

Tubas battling flutes

The tubas and flutes duke it out during Power. The flutes may be smaller but they make up for it with greater numbers.
