Since the mid-1960s, one of the most distinctive aspects of student life at Stanford and most visible features of the university’s on-campus culture has been The Incomparable Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band.
This panel presentation will address the genesis and development of the Band as we know it today, beginning with the “Band Strike” in 1963.
The discussion will be moderated by John Mannion, ’89, and will feature Dr. Arthur P. Barnes, emeritus professor of music and the Band’s director when it created its unique performance style. Other panelists scheduled include Patrick Neschleba, ’96, M.S. ’98; Frank Robertson, ’65; Dr. David Ruiz, ’73; and Jacki Williams-Jones, ’76, A.M. ’77.
In addition to the panel presentation, there will be a display of historical Stanford Band artifacts and a live performance at the end of the program.
