Saturday, Jan. 11, nearly 40 alumni returned to Notre Dame for the 28th Annual Alumni Band Reunion. Some of our current student musicians performed with them as well. The day began with a morning rehearsal, and then the band was joined by family, friends, and members of the ND community for their evening performance in Collins Auditorium.
While the cabaret-style concert featured our extremely talented alumni musicians from across the decades (many professionals and music educators today!), their favorite part of the day was the morning rehearsal where they reconnected with one another and just had a lot of fun playing music together. What a great example of the lasting ND Brotherhood for our students!
Each year, one alumnus is selected to receive the Salvatore Michael Amore ‘78 Alumni Band Loyalty Award. This year’s recipient was Bryan Mancini ‘01 of Milford, who has played in every Alumni Band Concert since he graduated.
