Ohio State Flute Studio Alumni and Current Students,
Mark your calendars and plan to join us for Homecoming Weekend — October 4–5, 2019.
The Ohio State Flute Studio Reunion will feature YOU — alumni and current students of Professor Katherine Borst Jones — performing piccolo on The Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa with The Ohio State University Marching Band.
We plan to have nearly 80 piccolos on the field during half-time of the Homecoming Game against Michigan State.
All rehearsals are mandatory!
