Moocho Macho Moocow Military Marching Band

Revision as of 03:33, March 15, 2006 by 06emm (talk | contribs)

The Williams College Moocho Macho Moocow Marching Band is composed of roughly 25-30 musicians who meet semi-weekly each fall in preparation for weekly home and/or away football games. These musicians have varying musical abilities and experiences allowing fledgling musicians the opportunity to play alongside and learn from those with more experience, which bridges the gap between the novice and other Williams music organizations. Although marching bands at other schools are limited to wind instrumentalists, the Williams Band honors equal opportunity and welcomes all instruments, such as violin and string bass, and even features vocalists in the plastic section, kazoos. Each week, under the direction of two caped student leaders, the Williams Band parades down Spring Street carrying with them the Williams Competitive Spirit to all home football games, opens the game with the Star Spangled Banner, performs an original half-time show and intersperses witty cheers along with rousing melodies throughout the game. Overall, the Williams Band prides itself in enthusiasm and musicianship while HAVING FUN!
