What’s new: The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Titan Thunder Marching Band will play its first indoor concert Dec. 3 in Kolf Sports Center on the Oshkosh campus.
- The 1 p.m. concert—titled The Sound of Thunder—will serve as a grand finale for the inaugural year of UW Oshkosh’s new marching band and will precede the men’s basketball game against UW-Stout, which tips off at 5 p.m.
- Tickets for the Titan Thunder performance alone are $10 adults, $5 for K-12 students and free for UWO students and children 5 and younger. Tickets are available at the door and must be purchased with cash.
What they’re saying: “I’ve been very impressed with both the sound and commitment of our students this year,” said Joe Scheivert, athletic bands director. “Everyone has been dedicated to creating a first-class program and performing at a high level.”
- The performance will include music the marching band played during halftime shows throughout the football season and other student favorites from their repertoire. Doors open at noon.
Background: UWO’s 76-member marching band, which includes color guard and twirlers, made its much-anticipated debut this fall at the Titans football home opener. The marching band performed at each of the football team’s four home games and traveled to UW-Eau Claire for the season finale Nov. 12.
Up next: The University’s pep band, the Bolt Band, also directed by Scheivert, will perform during the basketball game following the concert. The Bolt Band is in its second year and will continue to perform at home basketball games throughout the winter.
