This is the first in a three-part series of short videos outlining the Notre Dame Band Experience. "Family" is one of these elements, with "Tradition" and "Excellence" comprising the remaining two components.
Producer's Note: In the course of creating this video, I interviewed several directors and students here at the Notre Dame Band. It is only now that I can fully appreciate the incredible community that exists in this place. Joining the band as a freshman and being inducted into this family is inspiring in and of itself. Beyond that, though, I've now had opportunities to interact with members of this family on a bit deeper level. These conversations have simply left me in awe. I'm exceptionally thankful to all those who agreed to sit for interviews. The passion and conviction with which you crafted your responses indeed bespeaks the depth of the bonds formed within this organization. It's been an honor and privilege.
