This is great news!


The UMass Marching Band will be getting a new facility. UMass has allotted $4.5 Million out of its last consrtuction budget for a new Band Building. Read the news on the Band Parents site here.

The Building will be located near the stadium and will enhance the football complex. I'm going to send the Band a donation. Hope they achieve their goal quickly!

Hi Frank....The marching band parents thank you! It will be wonderful to have a place where the uniforms can be kept and where the band can actually change into the uniforms, instead of changing in a parking lot. On those very cold and/or rainy days, it has been a struggle for the students to be comfortable. Of course, there are many other good reasons to be ecstatic about the building!....Linda Haggerty

Hope UMB reaches its goal quickly.

I am happy to see UMass upgrade their band program. As a parent of a football player, I appreciate the pagentry the band brings to the stadium and the musical talent they display on the field. The band itself is more than worth the price of a ticket. As a parent of a player I receive my complementary ticket so I have been donating my savings to the building fund. I encourage other football parents to do the same.
