Best of two worlds

Did you know that the University of Michigan engineering students make up 40% of the Michigan Marching Band? They juggle creativity and precision, long working hours, and ever-burning passion for music and their band.

Typically, engineers are considered to be left brained, very logical and methodical. Musicians on the other hand might be thought of as right brained, more expressive and creative. The Marching Band finds a balance between the two that attracts some very talented young minds.

Band members form strong relationships and learn lifelong lessons marching together. In oppressive heat or numbing cold, they put in countless hours of practice for a chance to march through the tunnel on football Saturday.
