TRAILBLAZERS: A Celebration of Women in the “Pride of Minnesota”
On October 28-29, 2022 the University of Minnesota-TC Marching Band will celebrate the history of women in the “Pride of Minnesota.” Women served the Band in various auxiliary roles since the 1940s; however, it wasn’t until 1972 that women were allowed to march and play in the main ranks of the Band. This fall, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of women being fully integrated into the University of Minnesota-TC Marching Band.
Saturday On-Field Recognition RSVP (deadline: Wednesday, October 19 at 8:00pm)
Female-identifying UMN-TC Marching Band alums are invited to join the band on the field during halftime.
Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma are the national honorary band fraternity and sorority, respectively. Both are dedicated to the service and support of college and university band programs.
