2017 FAU Marching Owls
Alumni Band Information
Homecoming: October 21
On Saturday, October 21, the FAU Alumni Band is invited to join the Marching Owls for a halftime performance during the FAU vs. North Texas Homecoming football game. A detailed schedule for the Alumni Band will be available approximately Thursday, October 12, after the kickoff time is announced. The schedule will be emailed to participants, and posted on the FAU Alumni page of the Marching Owls website.
The Marching Owls and Alumni Band will pay tribute to two great musicians that were lost in the recent past: Maurice White and Chuck Berry. To open the show, the Marching Owls will perform Earth, Wind, and Fire’s Boogie Wonderland. Following that piece, the Alumni Band will join the Marching Owls for a performance of Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode and FAU’s traditional Fight Song. The arrangements are challenging, and we will email them directly to you beginning in mid-September. We will also have the fight songs and traditional music available at Alumni Band registration that weekend.
The schedule for the day will be as follows:
9am FAU Marching Owls rehearsal begins on practice field
10am Alumni band joins the Marching Owls on practice field
2pm Marching Owls meet at Narnia for prepare for the march to the stadium

As a special treat for our alumni band, we have partnered with the Marlene & Harold Forkas Alumni Center this year! We wanted to honor the alumni band by inviting them to the OWLumni Tailgate on game day . You will be able to get some food and drink before the game and catch up with other FAU alumni. The tailgate is held at the Marleen and Harold Alumni Center on campus from 3-4:30pm . We do ask that any alumni band members who want to attend register at https://faualumni.org/NorthTX.
