arching band uses intricate style Members of Symphonic Band audi- tioned and were chosen according to their abilities, but no student was excluded from Concert Band. Likewise, Big Purple members were not required to audition before becoming a part of the marching band. Although he was president of the school's largest band, Meaders was not a music major, but a government major who planned to attend law school. The presi- dent said two of the last three Big Purple presidents also were non-music majors. Meaders said being president of the band was hard but "a great job. lim more of a social director. They call the band the largest social club on campus," he added. In addition to Meaders, junior mass communication majors Bart Moyers and Steve Sargent helped lead the band as drum majors. Ed George, assistant professor of music, assisted Whitwell in directing the band and designing the marching shows. The directors led the marching band in what Meaders called a "corps style," a marching style that band members described as more fluid and intricate than traditional military marching band style. Members of the Big Purple had two favorite pieces, "March Grandiosen and "Bugler's Dream," Meaders said. When the group played "Bugler's Dream" one member acted out lighting a flame similar to the Olympic torch. Among the group's 1981 performances were the West Texas State Fair and Rodeo parade and a Fall Revue, a concert featur- ing music played during the football halftime shows.
