SUPPORTING MSOM & UMD BANDS

Gifts/supporting MSOM & Maryland Bands:
 

We are grateful that our yearly operating budget is provided by both the School of Music and the Athletic Department. However, we always appreciate additional support of gifts from those interested in investing in the future of Maryland Bands. Student scholarships, new instruments, and a forthcoming uniform purchase are just a few of the ways that we hope to provide the very best experiences for our MSOM members. Halftime sponsorships and section sponsorships for the season are available and welcomed. If you would like to know more, please contact Norah Quinn McCormick at naquinn@umd.edu or 301.405.6485.
 


Section Sponsorship:

The Mighty Sound of Maryland is comprised of twelve energetic and unique sections all working together to present exciting pregame and halftime performances.


From the clarinets to the tubas, these sections achieve excellence from pride in their individual instruments and their connection with the band as a whole. Your section sponsorship will help support MSOM, while recognizing the contribution of an individual section.


A donation of $1,000 to the Marching Band Fund will sponsor one section for the season. Section sponsors will:
 

  • Be our guests at a UMD Home Football Game Day 

  • Be acknowledged in the Gameweek e-newsletter

  • Receive a framed photo with your sponsored section

 

If you would like to know more, please contact Norah Quinn McCormick at naquinn@umd.edu or 301.405.6485.

 

Halftime Sponsorship:

 

Marching Band members spend many hours each week in rehearsal, preparing a new halftime show for each home football game. The performance is a culmination, not only of the hours of rehearsal by the students, but of much hard work by our music and drill writers as well.
 

Having professional musical arrangements and drill designs created specifically for the Mighty Sound of Maryland is a costly undertaking. To show their support for MSOM, friends have the opportunity to sponsor a halftime show.

 

A donation of $2,500 to the Marching Band Fund will sponsor one halftime show for the season. Persons sponsoring a halftime show will:

 

  • Be our guests at a UMD Home Football Game Day 

  • Be acknowledged in the Gameweek e-newsletter

  • Be acknowledged in the halftime show performance and on the Maryland score boards

  • Receive a framed photo with your name spelled out by the Band during the postgame show
