Our family enjoyed attending the Texas Bowl last month in Houston, particularly the energy the University of Minnesota’s marching band brought to all of the events and the game itself. You appreciate our band’s class and excellence when you see them side by side other bands in these bowl games. Several fans approached us at the game with glowing comments on the band’s performance that can be summarized in one word: Wow! The band members are great ambassadors of our state and are truly the pride of Minnesota.
