Transcript ■"mmaam And Life Marches on... f*or Beth Sorrells music has always been a part of her life. So making head drum major her senior year at University of Houston was an achievement that allowed the saxophonist to indulge in one of her favorite passions. Sorrells's older brothers were former UH band members, and she had grown up listening and participating in the world of music ail around her. After graduating from Spring High School, she spent her freshman and sophomore years at UH learning music and fine tuning her saxophone skills. "At first I had wanted to play the flute, but then I heard this jazz band and decided that it was something I liked," Sorrells said. Rising through the ranks, she became assistant drum major her junior year and head drum major her senior year. "No matter what I'm doing in an organization, I've always wanted to be involved. One of the top positions in the band is drum major, so you are very involved and have lots of say-so," Sorrells said. Sorrells would practice with fellow band members during regular class hours and right before each game or event in which they performed. Some of her duties included conducting the marching band during events such as football games, making sure the band members were always in order and behaving and helping out the band director. Sorrells enjoyed her involvement and found pleasure in events like a high school marching band contest UH performed at as an exhibition band last year. "I remember competing in the contest in high school. It's a lot more fun and less stressful when you're there as an exhibition band and not competing," she said. Sorrells will graduate this May with a degree in business management and a minor in Spanish. She hopes to stay in Houston and begin a career in the field of human resources. As far as her music goes, Sorrells hopes to find the time every once in a while to pick up her saxophone and welcome the hobby she has enjoyed so much — just sit and play. • by Audrey Warren Being head drum major is a job thai holds a lot of responsibility, Senior Beth Sorrells takes il on and leaves her mark at UH.
