Dear LHAB family,

As many of you have seen in the news and social media, our new Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Chris Del Conte has reconfigured the seating in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for next fall, putting all of the students together, and that includes LHB.  The new home of the Longhorn Band will be the front 23 rows in sections 30 and 31, which is the mirror image section of where many of you sat during your years in the band.

These moves raise the important question of where LHAB will sit at next fall’s Alumni Band Day, scheduled for Saturday, November 17.  That seating will be in the south end zone, sections 37 and 38.  For most games, those sections will be general admission student seating, but for our big weekend, those seats will be reserved for the greatest alumni band in the world!

We are grateful to Mr. Mike Perrin for his continued support of and advocacy for LHAB – his leadership ensures that LHAB will continue to have a home in the lower level of the stadium for years to come!

Wishing all of you the best in 2018, and Hook ‘Em!
