"It is sort of an education class. We learn different pieces and put on a concert once a year," said Carl Wilson, who has been a member of the Cougar Band for three years. Eddie Green, director of wind ensemble retired last year. "This prolific educator is responsible for the success of Houston high schools' big bands. "He worked with everybody," Wilson said. Dr. Rob Smith, in charge of the Aura Ensemble is another person responsible for the success of the band. He is one of the new composition teachers at University of Houston. The Cougar Marching Band has two sections: The Wind Ensemble and the Symphonic Band. For the winds, one person plays the parts. In the Symphonic, the band plays the parts. The instrumentation is the same for both sections. The members of the band and symphony play brasses, tubas, trombone French horns, trumpets, saxes and woodwinds to name a few. The Cougar Band is known for it's performances at athletic events, but when they're not performing at football fans, the Cougar Band performs in festivals and events around the world. One of the highlights of the Cougar Band was marching in the 2000 Houston Livestock and Show Rodeo. The difference between the groups are the number of members. There are approximately 40 members in the wind ensemble and 60 in the band. They have the same instruments. The band performs different pieces such as the "Transcription of Enigma" by Elgar and "Transcriptions of planets" by Holtz. For the members of the Cougar Band, this year has been one filled with many opportunities and memories. As long as there is a need for music and tradition, there will always be a Cougar Band to fulfill that need. * by Andrew Sandoval Members of the University of Houston's band program march on the football field at half time to perform for the enjoyment of the audience. ALL TOGETHER The Cougar Marching Band works together to put on a musical show at halftime. Photo hy Pin Lim UIliVERSiTY OF HOUSTOll BAHDS • 129
