Baylor University's Golden Wave Marching Band will showcase favorite music from the past four years of halftime performances when the 260-member band performs in a scholarship benefit concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, in the Ferrell Center.

Under the direction of assistant professor and associate director of bands Jeff Grogan, the concert will include a tribute to the music of John Williams featuring his "Olympic Fanfare and Theme" and music from "Star Wars" and "E.T.," a salute to veterans highlighting favorite patriotic and big band tunes, and traditional Baylor songs.

At the conclusion of the concert, the band will march from the Ferrell Center to Fountain Mall on campus for the Homecoming bonfire and pep rally, which is slated to begin at 9:15 p.m. Those who attend the concert are welcome to follow the band to the bonfire site.

"Last year we had a good group of about 100 people who marched behind us," Grogan said. "Since the band isn't able to march from campus to Floyd Casey Stadium on game days, this is a fun and exciting opportunity for us and other Baylor fans to really get in the spirit."

Tickets are $100 for patron seating, $10 for premium seating and $5 for regular seating. Proceeds from the concert benefit band and School of Music scholarships.

Tickets are available at the Bill Daniel Student Center ticket office and also can be purchased at the door. For more information, call the ticket office at 710-3210.
