Iconic Band, Iconic Leader

Iconic band led by iconic director.

“ ‘Iconic’ would not be hyperbolic to describe USC’s Trojan Marching Band.”

That’s the opening sentence in a story in The Athletic that looks into the development of the Trojan Marching Band under Dr. Bartner. The Q&A explores Dr. Bartner’s success in diversifying the ranks, attracting top guest talent and why and when the band plays Tribute to Troy – beyond just annoying opponents.

“If there’s a more famous marching band in college sports, it doesn’t come to mind,” the story continues.

And if there’s a more iconic director, well, that doesn’t come to mind either. You can read the opening of the story in The Atlantic, but it’ll take a subscription to see the whole thing. The good news, you can get a free trial for the first month.
