Please register for this awesome opportunity to perform in Columbus, OH on July 3rd, 2014, in the RED, WHITE, AND BOOM PARADE! This is a very exciting opportunity for the Alumni Band to add an additional annual performance, allowing some who cannot attend in the fall to still get a chance to prove that you're NEVER too old to FUNK!
We are approaching this performance opportunity very seriously - we are requiring all members to wear a "uniform" and attend a rehearsal. Current members and recent alumni can wear your Diamond Ohio shorts and Green Russell Athletic OUMB polo. We don't yet know if we will be able to stop and perform along the route - but we hope to, so we want to plan for a music/dance rehearsal (as well as setting a good parade block).
We will initially stage and rehearse at Olentangy-Orange High School, located in Powell. Marc Zirille (Trumpet) has been gracious to allow us to use his band facilities for rehearsal. The Ohio University Alumni Association is providing bus transportation to and from the parade route. Exact times and information will be available in the coming weeks, but for now, here is a tentative schedule.
Meeting Location: Olentangy-Orange High School, Powell, OH
Registration/Uniform distribution: 12:00 NOON-1:00 PM
Transport to Parade: 3:00PM-4:30PM
