  1. From Moog to Mannheim

    ’Tis the season for Mannheim Steamroller’s Chip Davis, BMus ’69, and his ‘18th-century classical rock’ renditions of holiday hits.

  2. Strike up the band

    Composer/arranger Jerry Bilik, BMus ’55/MMus ’61, takes you inside the Michigan Marching Band. He’s the artist behind some of their most beloved classics.

  3. An uncommon education: Ep 3

    Celebrate U-M’s musical legacy in ‘An Ear for Excellence,’ the latest installment in Detroit Public Television’s series about U-M history.

  4. Women, take the field!

    The rule barring women from the Michigan Marching Band was dropped in 1972 — not with a bang, but a whisper.
