Gallery: Marching Salukis adapt practices with COVID-19 restrictions

March 9, 2021

The Marching Salukis practices have looked a little different this year due to the pandemic. 

The band has been directed by Dr. George Brozak for the past 12 years.

Due to COVID-19 regulations, the band has been social distancing, but is still able to get together and do what they do best, play music in harmony.

They wear masks designed to play their specific instruments. Some have holes in the front for instruments like baritones and clarinets while others have holes going on the side of the mask for instruments like the piccolo.

The Marching Salukis gather on Tuesdays and Thursdays this semester at Altgeld Hall and practice while staying socially distanced.

They practice pop songs like Allstar by Smashmouth, Bad Guy by Billie Eilish and the Saluki Fight Song in preparation for the next home football game at Saluki Stadium.
