12:00 pm Lunch Break with Athletic Band Members
This is a great opportunity to get to know some band members personally and talk about the OMB, classes, and being a student at UO! Athletic Band representatives wearing Oregon Marching Band Polos will meet you in the Ford Alumni Center after your information session and lead you towards great places to get lunch.
Following the lunch break there will be time for students to meet with departments of their intended major. Please contact the department directly and set up a meeting with an advisor or professor of the subject you are interested in majoring in. Your Athletic Band Representatives can lead you to your appointment. If you are interested in majoring in music you will have the opportunity take a School of Music and Dance tour. Please see the School of Music and Dance Admissions page for more details.
The Director of Athletic Bands Dr. Eric Wiltshire or the Administrative Coordinator Anna Waite can answer any additional questions you have about the Athletic Bands. This is a great opportunity for them to get to know you before the start of the season!
Bring your instrument, warm up in sections with the Oregon Marching Band and meet your future section! You can borrow an instrument from the OMB if needed. Percussionists are welcome to observe warm up on the field and bring a practice pad if you would like to participate. After warming up, we encourage you to stay and watch the rest of the rehearsal from the sideline. Rehearsal ends at 6:00pm.
