The Marching Owls
"The Marching Owls" inaugural season occurred in the Fall of 2015. The ensemble consists of members from every major on campus, including the Marietta and Kennesaw campuses. Students perform a music and marching audition each year, ensuring the most prepared students earn a position in the ensemble each season. This allows our performances to be at the highest collegiate level possible.
Students are encouraged to enroll in the course prior to auditions using the (MUSI 1142 or 3342) course numbers. With a maximum of 300 members, our ensemble includes a feature twirler, colorguard, and drumline with marching cymbal line.
The class meets on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (of home game weeks, with some exceptions) from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM.
The program is fortunate to have partnerships with industry leaders: Yamaha, Sabian, Remo, and Vic Firth. Each of these entities helps make our success possible and the benefit of these partnerships goes directly back to the student membership.
