Notes from the Director

Brad McDavid Dear Friends: I can't believe the 2013 season is already upon us! What a grand season it is going to be. As I have traditionally done in past autumn editions of the e-News, I'd like to give you a brief description of what you can expect at all of this year's halftime shows. Learn more.

Sneak Preview a Resounding Success

Sneak Preview The 11th annual Husky Football Sneak Preview might not have been as much of a preview to the season as in the past, due to its move from August to September, but it was clearly the most successful! It was also the best-attended Sneak Preview, with close to 300 Husky Band supporters in attendance. Learn more.

Where Are They Now?

Who is this? In every edition of the e-News, we like to include an interview with a prominent HMB alum. This issue, we catch up with former Husky Band drumline member Randy Hodgins, ’79, ’83. Randy has gone on to great heights within the University, and it was our pleasure to interview him. Learn more.
