2014 Performance Schedule
Director of Bands, Dr. David Mills, Assistant Director, Marvin McNeill, and the University of Connecticut Marching Band are excited to announce the 2014 UCMB performance schedule. Your first chance to see the 2014 UCMB on the field will be at the UConn Football home opener against BYU on Friday, August 29 at Rentschler Field.
The annual UCMB Preview Show will officially mark the end of preseason on Saturday, August 30. This is a great time to see the band up close and meet the 2014 student leaders and staff. Family, friends and fans alike are invited to join the UCMB at the Sherman Family Sports Complex on campus. This event is free and open to the public. UCMB alumni are also invited to a special pre-show tailgate at the UConn Alumni Association.
In addition to seven home games and several high school exhibitions this year, the UCMB is excited to perform at the inaugural New England Collegiate Marching Band Festival hosted by the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The homecoming football game will be held on Saturday, November 1. All UCMB alumni are invited to join the band on the field during halftime for a combined performance. This year is very special as the UCMB will celebrate Dr. Mills’ 25th year as director and Marvin McNeill’s 20th. Visit uconnband.org/alumni for updates and news stories.
