Celebrating 100 years of The Carolina Band!
In today’s Carolina Band, the legacy of legendary UofSC Director of Bands James K. Copenhaver lives on with the state-of-the-art James K. Copenhaver Band Hall and the endowed Copenhaver scholarship fund serving UofSC band members. For tomorrow’s Carolina Band, your contributions can build upon his legacy by providing equipment, facilities and travel opportunities. And your legacy can shape the next century of The Carolina Band.
As we continue to celebrate our centennial, we also begin to chart the course for the next 100 years. As always, the student experience is our primary focus, and three key areas have a significant impact on that experience:
- First, the replacement of aging instruments is a never-ending challenge. Providing the best possible equipment to our students allows them to succeed at the highest levels.
- Next, the Copenhaver Band Hall is a showcase for our commitment to the band. The addition of spirited historic imagery to the interior is our next step toward sharing the band’s proud tradition.
- Finally, travel beyond annual away games is a goal for the coming years. Expanding our visibility will allow us to recruit the nation’s top students, provide incredible performance opportunities and show the world what we have to offer at South Carolina.
The next 100 years of The Carolina Band begins today, and you can continue to make this an experience like no other.
