After over four decades without it, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh football game days will look quite different this weekend with the addition of the Titan Thunder marching band to game-day festivities: It will make its debut this Saturday against East Texas Baptist University as part of Joe Scheivert’s work as Director of Athletic Bands to create this group from scratch. From designing uniforms and finding practice facilities to recruiting current and potential students into membership of this band – Joe will take care of every step in building it!

The team consists of musicians playing piccolo, flute, clarinet, alto and tenor saxophone, trumpet, mellophone, trombone, bass sousaphone and color guard instruments – in addition to those learning new ones like marching percussion or color guard. Students interested in joining can apply through an open call this spring; 75 members then gathered earlier this month for preseason band camp – an intensive yet rewarding experience to prepare the group for its debut later this season.

At games, the Titan Thunder band will perform not only traditional marching band music but also original UWO fight songs and an acoustic version of its school’s anthem. They are scheduled to perform at all UWO home and away football games as well as some non-football events like homecoming parades.

Scheivert credits the UWO marching band with being the result of hard work from faculty and staff over an extensive period. He stressed the significance of bringing back such a musical force to campus as a great way for students to connect while showing support for student-athletes.

UWO’s marching band demonstrates their dedication to student involvement across campus, which also includes reinstating men’s basketball to its lineup, adding women’s volleyball as a program and revamping baseball to include conference rivalry. Recently UWO hosted 16th-ranked Wheaton College for a College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin game at Shirk Center; seniors Lucas Heflen and Cody Mitchell scored combined 38 points to lead their Titans over Cardinals 87-85 win!

Future missions to Saturn moon Titan may search for lightning by searching for its accompanying thunder. Unfortunately, finding thunder on such an inhospitable, distant body won’t be as simple as simply pointing a microphone and reading its signal; soundwaves travel through material differently depending on where they pass; Titan has much colder atmosphere than Earth so sound waves could change and alter depending on where they pass through.

Titan Thunder: Wrath of Hades may not be revolutionary in terms of innovative features or graphics; however, its volatile journey through heavens and underworld with two ancient world scions provides an engaging blend of classic settings and familiar features.
