It is a big weekend for Coral Noonan-Terry, a former feature baton twirler for The University of Texas Longhorn Marching Band. She is now president of The University of Texas Longhorn Alumni Marching Band, known as the world’s largest band of it’s sort. The alumni band performs this weekend at the University of Texas-Iowa State game halftime and the event marks the band’s 47th annual reunion performance.
Here is today’s radio interview with Coral Noonan-Terry and other band members. Check out the fascinating history and details of the alumni band!
Coral Noonan-Terry achieved her bachelor, masters, and doctorate degrees at the University of Texas. She has many professional accomplishments related to educational administration, in early childhood education as well as higher education. And she still finds time to do some twirling and keep her skills up!
The alumni band joins forces with UT’s current Longhorn Marching Band for a tremendous display of pageantry. This means 1,000 performers on the field creating a big impression! This video is last year’s halftime show. Just listen to that crowd!
The Longhorn Alumni Band is a unique organization that was established in 1964. This weekend’s performance will include alumni veterans who graduated as far back as 1936 and as recently as last year. Band members from 8 generations will be taking the field. The band currently boasts a roster of 3,000 members in 7 countries.
