Troy University Band Alumni Chapter

Your chapter is hard at work~


“The Troy University Band Alumni Association is a university affiliated alumni chapter whose mission is to support the Troy University Sound of the South band program through scholarships, financial assistance, service, and the fostering of relationships forged through membership in the band program that is Dr. Johnny Long’s lasting legacy.”

The TUBA board would like to thank everyone for such a great Reunion last year. Through your memberships, donations, purchasing Alumni spirit items and the "Fanfare" book we raised enough money to fulfill the $20,000 scholarship endowment!



6:00 p.m. - Midnight -- Reception w/ Heavy Hors d'oeuvres at The Courtyard Marriott. A cash bar will be availalbe. Early registration and preorders available for pick up. Fanfare books will be on sale for $40.

8:00 a.m. - Registration. We have discussed all year how to make this more efficient. Our plan is to have registration divided up into different stations according to the alphabet. There will also be a "store area" to purchase different Alumni Band items and pick up prepaid items. Hopefully
this will keep us on schedule.

9:00 a.m. - Rehearsal, Annual Business Meeting and elections. We have 2 open Member-at-Large positions. Please email jamiemh@icloud.com if interested.

**Game Time TBA**

Drum Majors: An invitation is open to all Drum Majors that held that position in a year that ends with a 6. ('66,'76,'86,'96,'06). Please contact jamiemh@icloud.com if interested.

Music: We will be honoring Mr. Ralph Ford and his 30 years of service to the "Sound of the South" by performing 2-3 of his arrangements during the half time show this year.

Please pay your dues ASAP. You will receive one ticket per membership. Once paid you will receive a discount code to purchase extra tickets.

TUBA will not be providing lunch on Saturday this year. We will be replacing that meal with a reception on Friday night. This will probably be an early game. Also- Friendly reminder that TUBA had to start paying for tickets yet we have not increased the dues.

Membership in the Troy University Band Alumni (TUBA) is for anyone who participated in the band, and even friends and families of the band.  You may participate in any of the alumni band activities so long as you are a member of any Troy University alumni chapter; however, we strongly encourage membership in TUBA because it has a direct connection with the current and former band members who have participated in the "Sound of the South" over the years.  It is hoped that we all can make the 2016-2017 year a memorable one, and demonstrate to the University and the Troy community how meaningful our band experiences were to our lives, whether we were in the band last semester or 76 years ago.   Our aim is to provide strong and continuous support for the current director and his students through scholarships and sponsorships.  This is our best contribution to the legacy of the "Sound of the South" program and its related ensembles.
