Description
Co-founded in 1804 by Major General Rufus Putnam and Reverend Manasseh Cutler, Ohio University is the oldest public institution of higher learning in the state of Ohio and the first in the Northwest Territory. The history of the Ohio University Bands is one rich in heritage and tradition. Diamond Ohio chronicles the triumphs and struggles of the band's fourteen directors (and supporting faculty) as they guided the marching and concert bands under their tenure. In 1922, Homer T. Baird entered Ohio University as part of the freshman class. A former member of the Athens High School and American Legion Bands, Baird knew that Ohio University did not have an established collegiate band of its own. His motto, "Show me a good marching band and I'll show you a strong and thriving University" reflects the spirit and majesty of Athens, Ohio and Ohio University. Garnering support from President Elmer Bryan and Dr. C. C. Robinson, Director of the School of Music, Baird convinced the university administration to allow the formation of a band. That small ensemble of approximately 40 musicians providing entertainment at football games and military events grew and prospered, becoming the first collegiate wind ensemble to perform in the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the first marching band to perform in New York's prestigious Carnegie Hall. The history of the Ohio University Bands is one rich in heritage and tradition. Diamond Ohio chronicles the triumphs and struggles of the band's fourteen directors (and supporting faculty) as they guided the marching and concert bands under their tenure. It includes performances, music selection, director biographies and interviews, as well as rare and never-before-seen photographs of the bands, band staff, and members. Tradition. Pride. Loyalty. Excellence. These four words are more than just a motto -- they represent the true spirit of "The Most Exciting Band in the Land!"
