p class=”p1″>Dear Cornell Big Red Marching Band,

There’s only one way to get through a football season that presented as many challenges as this past one did.  Together.

Togetherness on the field. Togetherness in the locker room. Togetherness across campus.  Togetherness in the stands.

The Cornell Big Red Football Family is a big, loud, proud supportive one. And nowhere was evidence of that support bigger, louder, more proud or more supportive than in the collective unit that is the Cornell Big Red Marching Band.

At home games, from the pre-game parade and concerts in the Crescent to your performances inside historic Schoellkopf Field, your musical motivation brought confidence and hope to hometown fans and left visitors full of envy. On the road, from Yale and Sacred Heart to Princeton and Penn, you inspired the Big Red Football Family and put opponents and their fans on notice that Cornell University was in town.

We cannot thank you enough for your passion, your dedication and support of Big Red Football, and the many sacrifices you made throughout this past season. We’re already looking forward to our 2016 campaign when we can once again join together in leading Cornell Football to even greater success.

With sincere gratitude and thanksgiving,

Parents of Cornell Big Red Football
