With a blink of an eye, it is once again time for fall semester! And you know what that means...that's right! It's marching season! Pfft, who said academics? That's totally not why you're here at Cornell. Anyway, I hope everyone has had a super fantastic summer break so far, and I can't wait to see you on campus! As always, anyone who wants their website info updated can send Steph an email at any time. Seriously, she doesn't bite, like, 80% of the time.
The Cornell University Big Red Color Guard is by far the best-looking section of the largest student-run organization on campus, the Big Red Marching Band, or BRMB. We march actual drill with actual equipment, compared to the erratic, bench-playing scatter bands of the other Ivy League institutions. This makes us the only REAL colorguard in the only REAL marching band in the Ivy League.
The guard writes our own routines (and sometimes drill, too) to suit our needs. Having to learn a new show every two weeks means we generally stick to using flags, although rifles, sabres, and other props have made appearances in recent shows.
The Color Guard isn't the largest section (saxes?), the loudest section (trumpets?), or the rowdiest section (tubae?), but we have a great time doing what we do.
Questions about the Guard? Interested in joining? Contact our captain, Sarah.
