“The Marching Owls”

“The Marching Owls” just completed their inaugural season in the Fall of 2015.  The ensemble consisted of members from every major on campus, including the newly combined SPSU campus (now called the KSU Marietta Campus).   Students will audition to be in the ensemble, on both music and marching, for the 2016 season.   This is to ensure the most prepared students are the ones who earn the spots each year, therefore keeping our level of performance at the highest it can be.   However, students are encouraged to register for the course prior to auditions to aid in ease of starting the semester.   MUSI 1147 or MUSI 3347 are the course sections to use when enrolling for the class.

We fully intend to march a 300-member band, including a colorguard and drumline with marching cymbal line.   The class meets on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (of home game weeks, with some exceptions) from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.

The program is fortunate to have partnerships with industry leaders: Yamaha, Sabian, Remo, and Vic Firth.  Each of these entities helps make our success possible and the benefit of these partnerships goes directly back to the student membership.
