Penn State Blue Band Alumni

The Alumni Blue Band playing at 1/2 time is a DELIGHTFUL display of love and pride for Penn State, for State College, for music and bands, and for former band members too!  The story goes that in 1948 when James Dunlop was the Director of the Blue Band, he kept in touch with many of the former students. That year, he wrote a letter to former members he was still in touch with and  invited them to come back to State College for the Homecoming Game and to sit in the stands with the current Blue Band members. The event was a hit! The following year, the Alumni Blue Band members were allowed to perform on the field at Beaver Stadium and the tradition continues!
