Experience Day is coming this Friday, Nov. 18! This is an event where musically-involved high school students get the opportunity to be a U student.
Juniors and seniors will be able to sit in for an academic session and ensemble workshop with the corresponding staff and music students. It’s a new event for the School of Music, although the marching band has had something similar to this for the past 10 years. Now it is an experience that voice, string, wind and percussion high school students will get the chance to enjoy.
Brian Sproul, director of the marching band and also one of the organizers of the event, sees this as a fantastic opportunity for high school students. High school students of voice, string, wind, and percussion will be able to check in during the morning before living the life of a college student as they learn new music knowledge–and even meet new people.
The School of Music is working hard for this event. By the looks of it, they are taking this seriously with the hope of showing how great the School of Music is and giving each student a great memory to hold on to.
To top it all off, they will also invite students involved in instrumental music to join the Utes Marching band during the Utah vs. Oregon game the following day, allowing the students to not only feel the involvement of being in a marching band at a college level, but also be able to experience the excitement and adrenaline from game day.
These are the U’s possible future students who will hopefully join and extend its vigorous, excellent arts program–best of luck to them!
