Making the Band

Near the end of every summer, Saint Ignatius Band Director Dan Hamlin takes his musically-inclined Ignatians away to band camp as the group gears up for performances at fall football games, rallies and other events. The week-long trip also allows the band members to have some fun and build up camaraderie before the school year begins.

This year, alumnus Rex Larkman ’15 joined the band and assisted with instruction, particularly for the drum line. A former member of the Wildcat Marching Band, Larkman is currently a member of a Cleveland-based punk rock band called Who Hit Me. While away with the band, he also produced a video mashup of scenes from this year’s camp.

You’ll be able to catch the marching band this year at football games, as well as rehearsing on Kyle Field early in the afternoons.
