The marching musicians in “orange and black” are back!
The “Star of Northwest Ohio” will present highlights from its 2019 program.
The Ohio Northern University Marching Band was organized in 1890 through the Military Department at ONU. The band played for military events and other University functions but was not active with athletic events until the early 1900s when the athletic department was developed. Today, the band is part of the Department of Music and is very active on and off campus in a variety of performances. The band uses a modified corps-style of marching, along with color guard, twirlers, off-the-field percussion battery and three field commanders. The band performs at all ONU home football games, one away game per season and several local parades. In addition, the band has been featured at numerous high school marching band festivals and competitions throughout Ohio. Membership in "The Star of Northwest Ohio" is open to all Ohio Northern students. The ONU Marching Band has performed for audiences all over the world. In recent years, the band has performed in Beijing, Shanghai, Rome, Sorrento, Hawaii, Paris, London, Montreal, Toronto and Los Angeles. The ONU Marching Band is under the direction of Dr. Charles Bates.
"Symphonic Opera" features the music of Mozart and music from famous operas by Giuseppe Verdi, Georges Bizet, Alexander Borodin, Sigmund Romberg and Victor Herbert. Soprano Kate Patterson and pianist Naomi Bernholt winners of the ONU Music Department’s concerto competition, feature as soloists with the ONU Symphony Orchestra.
The Ohio Northern Symphony, under the direction of Dr. Antoine T. Clark, is a hybrid orchestra comprised of a highly select group of students, faculty, and professionals. The symphony performs two programs a year, and enrollment is open, by way of an audition, to all University students regardless of major.
