TTU's Marching Band in concert on Friday, Nov. 18Tennessee Tech University’s Golden Eagle Marching band will take their talent from the field to the auditorium with a concert on Friday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Bryan Fine Arts Building’s Wattenbarger Auditorium.
“The band plays very, very musically. That is our first goal,” said Director George Brozak. “But they also know how to have fun. Many of the pieces we’ve featured in our halftime shows reflect the popularity of contemporary rock music. The band loves playing the music of today, and entertaining the students and fans at TTU.”
The concert will feature a variety of musical genres, including traditional and patriotic songs and popular music by Ray Charles, the Black-Eyed Peas and Destiny’s Child.
Robert Jager will be a guest conductor for the band’s rendition of his composition, “Esprit de Corps,” a piece originally written for the United States Marine Corp.
The band is celebrating its 74th year and comprises 160 members, including the Golden Girls, majorettes and color guard.
Tickets for the show are $5 for the general public or $2 with a valid student identification. They are available in advance through TTU’s Band Office or the night of the concert from the Wattenbarger ticket office.
