Much is made of the sacrifice student-athletes make to represent their university, spending hours upon hours practicing in the gym or on the field for the privilege of wearing the school colors and making a name for their school.
But there are other groups of students who give of their time in equal measures, and to little or no fanfare. Students in the School of Music, for instance, often spend eight or more hours a day on campus in classes, ensemble rehearsals, private lessons and individual practice. All this so they can represent Baylor in performances and competitions. One example: The Baylor University Wind Ensemble performed this selection (see video below) at a concert in February and will perform it again in April at a concert in Richardson, Texas, just north of Dallas. (Tickets available now.)
Sic ’em, Baylor music students, and all who represent BU!
