Welcome! The website is under renovation!!
Congratulations to our recently graduated seniors, Lauren and Stephanie! We will miss you greatly, though we know you are off to do amazing things. We hope you come back sometime to visit us! Also, a big thank you to the guard for an amazing and successful (albeit chill) spring semester. We're looking forward to the fall! There is currently no official webmaster but for now, anyone who wants their website info updated can send Tara 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, Tara.
