Ensembles Participated in...

Bronco Marching Band

I have participated in the WMU Bronco Marching Band since 2007. I began playing Baritone and then became Drum Major in 2008. I have been Drum Major since.

This ensemble performs at all WMU home football games and occasionally at away games. During my time in the band we have traveled to such places as Houston, TX (Texas Bowl), Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ford Field. Currently the marching band consists of approximately 300 members. The director is Professor David Montgomery.
