To some, fall at Notre Dame means football season. But to a certain subset of the student body (and its fans), autumn means something else entirely: band season.


The country’s finest marching band launched its 174th season last week with its annual school-year-starting marchout, and since then the campus has been abuzz with the sounds of sousaphones. That section features prominently in this week’s photo, captured at an August 27 rehearsal by University photographer Matt Cashore ’94.
