Congratulations to the University of Maryland marching band: the Mighty Sound of Maryland!
In a few days time the Mighty Sound of Maryland, the University of Maryland’s marching band, will play in President Obama’s second inaugural parade. This continues a tradition for the band that goes back almost 100 years, to when the Maryland Agricultural College cadet band played in President Woodrow Wilson’s second inaugural parade in 1917 (seen below). Maryland’s marching band has also played in the inaugural parades of President Eisenhower in 1953, Kennedy in 1960, and Reagan in 1985. Congratulations to the MSOM for again being accorded this great honor!
