About this item

This book recounts the history and traditions of Florida State U.’s Marching Chiefs band, in the context of the rise of the university and its Department of Music, the evolution in Tallahassee of Big Football, and the impact of changes in American society. It details the band’s leaders, shows, and music, outlining musical developments at Florida State U.’s predecessor institutions through 1952 and the influence of music on campus; the 1953 arrival of Manley R. Whitcomb and his influence on subsequent directors Robert Braunagel and Richard Mayo; and the band under the leadership of Bentley Shellahamer, Robert Sheldon, Patrick Dunnigan, and David Plack. The author, an arts administrator, fundraiser, former classical music critic and columnist, and director of development at the U. of South Florida, was a member of the band.
