Final Project and Sound Project Process
This piece has a lot of internal meaning to me. The school alma mater and state hymn â€œHail Minnesotaâ€? is sung after every gathering of the Minnesota Marching Band whether itâ€™s just a rehearsal, or the last performance of the year. Graduating members get to conduct â€˜Hail Minnesotaâ€? once as a farewell to the band. This being my 5th year in the band I received priority for when I conduct. I chose the inspection before the last football game of the year. This inspection happens inside the lobby of Northrop mostly due to weather but also because of the acoustics of the space for singing â€œHail Minnesota.â€?
