AND NOW, Introducing Your 2016 Alumni Relations Chairs

Alumni Relations

Enjoying pizza at Yale!

Fall 2015 was a wonderful season: We basked in the sunshine at band camp, shivered through trips to Montreal and Buffalo, and filled Lynah and Schoellkopf with joyful noise as we cheered on Big Red. But now 2016 is upon us! With a new year comes a new Bandstaph. It is our pleasure to introduce ourselves as your 2016 Alumni Relations Chairs!

Hi, I’m Kristen Rose! I’m a sophomore biology major who plays piccolo in the marching band. Although I love the piccolo, I eventually got tired of trying to tune it, so I also play horn in the pep band. If I’m not at band, I’m probably counting fruit flies.

Hello, I’m Odalis! I’m a freshman in ILR interested in pursuing a career in immigration law. I’ve played the flute since I was in elementary school and I’m glad I was able to continue that hobby by playing with the only REAL marching band in the Ivy League! In addition to music, I’ve always had a passion for dance.

We are thrilled to see what 2016 has in store for the Big Red Bands.

Please reach out to us at and with any questions or comments. We’d love to hear from you!
