The MSSU Music Department would love to have all Band Alumni back on campus to participate in the first Lion Pride Alumni Band on Saturday, September 21st.

Since this is the first year for Alumni Band, please help spread the word by passing along this information to any friends and family that are MSSU Lion Pride Marching Band (LPMB) alumni.

Anyone who has ever performed with the LPMB is welcome to participate.  The Music Department will even have a limited number of instruments available, in case, participants have since parted with their own.

The Music Department will welcome back Dr. Wayne Harrell as the Alumni Band conductor.  The Alumni Band will perform alongside the current LPMB in selections of Rubberband Man, the MSSU Alma Mater and the MSSU Fight Song.

Each person participating will be given a complimentary ticket to the game; however, family and friends will need to purchase tickets through the Ticket Office.
