Now that the Fall 2013 band season is almost here, it's time to get the site updated again! New members, please send me your info and a picture so I can add you. Old members, as always, you can update your picture or info at any 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, Emma.
