Guest Artist Visits
Professor Richard L. Cryder
Friday, February 22

The Band Enthusiasts and our Tiger Bands were very excited to have a special visitor on Friday in the personage of Professor Richard L. Cryder. Dick Cryder, widely acclaimed as one of the leading proponents of the lyric style of trombone playing in the nation, spent time sharing of his incredible knowledge regarding the art of brass playing with us. What a privilege and a pleasure it was to have an artist of this calibre at Tiger Band Central.

... working with Gavin on his solo from "Manhattan" which shall be featured on the Band Gala in April

... it is also true that Professor Cryder visited with our much-beloved "FTGPB" [aka Fighting Tiger Grrr... Pep Band] on Saturday in Alumni Gymnasium - to witness the "spectacle" we know as

The Band Enthusiasts were in high gear, as we all welcomed our very special friend "Donnie" back to campus. The outcome is that for which we had hoped.

Us = 80
Them = 68

... Coach Osborne & Co will retain their ranking as the #1 team in the nation. Go Tigers!

... a very, very, very special Thanks & Thanks to Professor Cryder for giving of his time to visit with the Band Enthusiasts and our Tiger Bands!
