Falcon Marching Band brings its big sound inside
Bowling Green State University’s Falcon Marching Band will present ”The Best of Times,” its annual “Sounds of the Stadium” concert, at 3 p.m. Nov. 13, 2011 in Kobacker Hall of the Moore Musical Arts Center.
Led by Dr. Carol Hayward, an associate professor of music education, the band will perform music from its halftime shows at this season’s Falcon football games, as well as traditional school songs and pregame music.
Among the selections will be: “I Hear America Singing,” a creative collection of patriotic selections that features the BGSU Men’s Chorus, under the direction Tim Cloeter. Other favorites from the season will include “Beatlemania,” a selection of hit songs made famous by the “Fab Four”; “Let’s Hear It for Boys,” a spoof of some of the popular ’90s boy bands; and “Styx and Stones,” featuring the music of the classic rock bands Styx and the Rolling Stones.
The largest student organizations on campus, with 280 members, the band is composed of students from all colleges of the University and is open to all students by audition regardless of major and class standing.
Tickets are $7 for students and senior citizens and $10 for other adults in advance, and $10 and $13, respectively, on the day of the concert. For more information, call the box office between noon and 6 p.m. weekdays at 419-372-8171 or 1-800-589-2224.
