It's the end of the fall semester and more importantly the marching season. Congratulations to our new Captain, Odile, and our new Co-Captain, Lauren! We know you both will be great! Also, a big thank you to our seniors, Rachel and Sarah, for always being amazing. We hope you come back every year to visit us! 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, Odile.
