Dear Ranger Band Members:
Welcome to all the new and returning members of the Ranger Bands! We have an exciting year in store, and we are thrilled to have you as a band member.
ABOUT THE BANDS:
Marching Band will meet 3 PM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The Ranger Band performs at all the football games and basketball games. To be in the Ranger Marching Band you will need to enroll in MUSI-3131.
If you are interested in participating in the Jazz Ensemble, you must audition for the group during the first week of classes. Please leave Tuesday and Thursday from 3:25-4:40 open in your schedule, as this is the time the class meets.
SCHOLARSHIPS: Everyone who enrolls in the Ranger Marching Band and is a full-time student receives a $1,500 scholarship for the year. (That is $750 each semester.) An additional $250 each semester is available for those who are in the Jazz Ensemble. Therefore, it is possible to receive $2,000 each year by participating in all the bands.
BAND CAMP: Band camp is an important time for us to solidify marching fundamentals and learn the pregame show and first halftime show of the year. If you plan to be a part of the marching band, you will need to attend band camp. (You have to be at band camp in order to receive your full scholarship.) Band camp will start August 2nd for the leadership team, August 4th for Drumline and Color Guard, and August 6th for everyone else, and a complete band camp itinerary will be sent to the band members in July.
For those living in university housing, you will be allowed to move into the dorms early during band camp, at no additional cost. If you will be living on campus, please check the appropriate box on this form in order to move into the dorms early.
Food for the week of band camp will be covered by the university.
There is a $25 band camp fee due August 7th. This one-time fee pays for uniform dry-cleaning as well as some of the food during the week. Make checks payable to NWOSU.
