Welcome MRD Alumni!

The 2016 Alumni Band Weekend ranges from November 18-20. Mark your calendars!

Each November, the MRD community gathers at JMU for the last regular-season football game of the season. The MRD alumni band will have a schedule of events during the weekend (see below for a tentative schedule), and opportunities to gather with both current and former band members and staff. The band will perform during the MRD Pregame show and will be featured during the Hafltime show, performing with the MRDs.

This is also a special weekend for the MRD program as we welcome all band parents to campus, and recognize our graduating seniors from the program.
