 clarinet section



The Clarinet section is comprised of 68 of JMU’s truest fans. While they may not necessarily be heard all the time, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear them make an appearance from time to time. “Clarinets, the band doesn’t sound half as good without you,” a quote from Mr. Scott Rikkers himself is an example of some things that resonate within the section. The Clarinets ensure that they have fun, dance, and put on a great performance every show. They recently joined in on a friendly rivalry with the MRD Colorguard by competing in “Dunk Off,” an Oreos and milk challenge.
