The Marching Band in a performance at the 2012 President's Fall Address.“This is an exciting opportunity to jump into,” notes CSU Marching Band Director Richard Frey of the trip. “We are thrilled to be the public face of CSU all the way over in Dublin.”

“This is an opportunity of a lifetime,” notes senior marching band member Luke Contreras. “Being able to represent the Green and Gold of CSU in the Green Isle of Ireland has the entire ensemble excited – a testament to the over 110 amazing years of music and marching that the CSU Marching Band has performed.”

Drum Major Devon Aimes notes that “the trip to Ireland is something that was never in my mind before I saw the invitation for the parade. This trip is a chance to expand my horizons and deepen my connections with the band and with others now around the world.”

All donations go towards trip

All proceeds and donations from the Sept. 29 fundraiser concert from the CSU and Fort Collins communities will go toward the band’s trip.

During the concert, the Symphonic Band will feature new faculty member John Seesholtz, Ph.D., singing Copland’s “Old American Songs,” while the Wind Ensemble selections will include a pair of Irish-inspired works by Percy Grainger, “Irish Tune from County Derry,” and “Molly on the Shore,” including an appearance by guest euphonist, Adam Frey.

The highlight of the evening will be a program performed by the CSU Marching Band, including the dynamic percussion section, color guard, Golden Poms, and, of course, the famous trombone suicides.
