A DIFFERENT
Band under new [

leaders hip in

By Samantha Walsh
Daily Staff Reporter,
This Saturday, as a stadium packed
with more than 111,500 screaming fans
anticipated the beginning of another
Michigan Football season, Music
senior Greg Whittmore tried desperate-
ly not to lose his lunch.
"I almost threw up, standing there
waiting to run out of the tunnel; I was
so nervous!," Whittmore said laughing
after Wednesday's band practice at
Elbel Field.
Saturday's game against Notre Dame
marked Whittmore's debut -
Michigan's 42nd marching band drum
major.
Whittmore has big shoes to fill after
three-year drum major Ramon Johnson
graduated last spring.
"Ramon Johnson wrote the book on
Michigan marching, but Greg has been
doing an awesome job," said
Engineering sophomore Ken Maschke,
who is also a member of the Michigan
Marching Band. "To be that good, you
have to love what you do."
But love is not everything when it
comes to getting the job.
In March, drum major candidates
plunged into an extensive selection
process, including an application
with essays regarding the band
member's philosophy and qualifica-
tions, interviews and an audition.
The audition consists of performing
a full routine and delivering an
inspirational speech in front of the
entire marching band.
"The Michigan Marching Band
has a high standard and a tradition to
live up to," Band Director James
Tapia said. "We look for someone
who is inspired as well as inspiring."
During auditions last spring,
Whittmore admits his confidence
level was high. He conducted his
high school band, played the clarinet
for Michigan his sophomore year
and was assistant drum major last
year.
Despite his qualifications and
confidence, Whittmore felt the need
to practice other skills traditionally
performed by the drum major.

"This position is
an extreme
honor"
- Greg Whittmore
Marching Band drum major
"I'd come out here all summer and
work out," Whittmore said. "There
are a lot of traditions that haven't
changed, things I have to know how
to do."
Whittmore explained that the
famous back bend drum majors do
before every game was first per-
formed by a drum major many years
ago who was missing a vertebrate in
his back, making him capable of
performing such a stretch. But for
Whittmore, who possesses all verte-
brate in his back, practice is
inescapable.
Along with a tall, feather topped
hat and a baton, the job comes with
an immense responsibility. Besides
leading a week of marching work-
shops for all band members in the
fall, Whittmore serves as a teacher,
leader and mentor to the band.
"This position is an extreme
honor and something I take very
seriously," Whittmore said. "I want
to use my given position to do what
I can to help other people out."
As not only a showman, but a
leader to the Michigan Marching
Band, Whittmore's new job holds
great importance.
"The drum major is the on-field
commander," Tapia said. "He is
inspiring and motivated; his heart
and soul is always a part of it. He
embodies what the band is thinking
at all times.
Although this is Whittmore's only
year as drum major before he goes
on to conducting high school bands,
there are still five more home game
opportunities . to witness
Whittmore's motivation lead the
Michigan Marching Band to musical
perfection.
