Hello, Mahdi and greetings from Ashland University! I hope this letter finds you well and in anticipation of Spring and warmer weather.

I would like to cordially invite you to the first ever Ashland University Festival of Bands to be held in Jack Miller Stadium on the campus of Ashland University. The event is to be held on September 28th starting at 7PM. This is not an OMEA sanctioned or competitive event.

We will begin the evening with a combined performance of the Star-Spangled Banner with all the participating bands. After that, each band will have approximately 10-15 minutes to perform their show. The evening will culminate in a final performance given by the Ashland University Eagle Marching Band and combined performances of a few marching band favorites. There will be concessions available throughout the event and the hope is to get some good film/audio of each performance.

Please R.S.V.P. as soon as possible via the information below if you can participate! It is sure to be a great performance and a good time for all. I do hope you will be able to attend.

Joe Lewis
Director of Bands, Ashland University
