Here is the schedule they gave us so far.... Mrs. Gross will be modifying it later. Central Michigan University Sixty-Fourth Band Day Saturday, September 23, 2017 Tentative Game Day Schedule –– Times and Logistics may change! 9:30 am All-Star Bandsmen arrive at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. All buses and other vehicles will Park in Lot 71, West of the Stadium, which has worked so well in recent years. Maps will be included in a later mailing. Once parked, Buses may not return to the stadium until AFTER the game. Upon arrival, each director is asked to check in with Dr. Batcheller, our graduate assistants, or drum majors to receive field charts with your band’s position. No field charts are included in this mailing and all bands will be placed on the field in the order in which they report. Time and individual school policy permitting, your students should plan to change into uniform at your buses. Otherwise, all performers should be in uniform when you arrive, as there are no changing facilities at the stadium. 9:45 am Assume rehearsal position as per information on the field chart. Please be prompt. Sectional rehearsals will begin once the massed band has been placed. 10:00 am Rehearsal begins: Sectionals, then Full Band. The Marching Chips will present a special musical salute to the visiting bandsmen at the end of rehearsal. 12:15 pm Lunch. There are numerous fast food establishments nearby or you may choose to bring your own lunches and “tailgate” near you buses. We are working with local vendors to offer delivery to your buses, which was so popular last year. Details to follow. 2:45 pm The CMU Marching Band will enter for the pre-game ceremony and the playing of our National Anthem. All visiting bands must be seated well in advance of this time to avoid the crowds. 3:00 pm CMU vs. Miami University Band Day Music: “Classic Hits for the Whole Family” 1. Heartache Tonight - Arr.
