Trumpets Block M_1.png


The trumpet section is comprised of 65 members with 48 performance block spots. Eight rank leaders and one section leader make up the student leaders of the trumpet section.

As a member of the trumpet section, this "family" will provide a valuable support system throughout your college career, helping you adjust to life in Ann Arbor and create life-long friendships.

My favorite thing about the trumpet section is the familial atmosphere! Never in my life have I felt such a feeling of camaraderie and inclusiveness, especially so quickly. The inside jokes, the helpfulness of the upperclassmen, and the great times we share together are something I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world.

My favorite thing about the trumpets is that they strive for excellence in every aspect of life. While excellence in musicianship and marching are important goals to pursue, perhaps the most astounding quality of my section is their excellence in character. Ever since my first day here, I have consistently felt welcomed, genuinely cared for, and encouraged. The trumpets always make a point of lifting others - and myself - up after our greatest successes and our failures. This extraordinary compassion is essential to making the trumpet section the wonderful group of goofy and kind people that I love!
