Band Parents' Letter from the Director (and Parents' Day Info)

(*Updated September 9, 2015)

We are excited to offer an excellent means of seeing the Liberty University Marching Band perform by participating in our Annual Band Parents’ Day.  Our twenty-seventh annual Band Parents’ Day is scheduled on Saturday, September 19, 2015, and I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend.  This is always one of the highlights of the marching season, and I am inviting all band members’ parents and their families to participate. Your day will be filled with activities that will give you an excellent idea of the varied schedule involved during our typical game days. 

We will begin with “Check-in” at 10:30 a.m. and a Luncheon Banquet 11:30 a.m., where our new Provost, Dr. Ronald Hawkins, will be our keynote speaker.  Following the banquet, we will hold our field rehearsal at 2:45 p.m.  Next, you will participate in our devotional period with Dr. Sean Beavers, School of Music, Associate Dean.  Our time together will focus on our spiritual theme, “I Believe."  Following dinner on your own, we will attend the football game in Williams Stadium, where Liberty University will face the University of Montana, and you will have reserved seating with the marching band.

Our past Band Parents’ Days have been a time of renewed fellowship among family members.  Read thoroughly the enclosed materials with the letter, and if you have any further questions, please call (434)582-2363.  Please feel free to dress in casual attire for all the events of the day.

VERY IMPORTANT this year: Band Parents’ Day, LU Family Weekend, and College For A Weekend are the same weekend. Please make your hotel reservations now.  Hotel rooms will fill up soon! You can find a current link to Local Accomodations in our area below.
