Frequently Asked Questions
Blazin’ Brigade is an ensemble course and all members must register for MUSC 3880. We rehearse six hours a week during our regular class time (MW 4:00-5:50 PM, F 3:00-4:50 PM). If we have a home game, we have stadium rehearsals on the morning of the game.
Beyond the cost to enroll in the marching band class, you only have to pay for required apparel like t-shirt, ball cap, spats, gloves, etc. You can find more information in the summer band packet.
There are multiple leadership opportunities for Blazin' Brigade members:
- Drum majors who lead the band musically
- Section leaders focus on sectionals and marching instruction
