A huge thank you to Chip Thompson who took on the role of Corporate Liaison last Spring. Over the summer, he has been working on ideas to get the Bronco Band corporate sponsorship and he has signed our first sponsor! Las Palapas became a Diamond Level Sponsor and donated $1,000 to the program! This is in addition to the many things Las Palapas contributes to our program throughout the year.


Thank you to Las Palapas for your sponsorship, and to Mr. Thompson for being a leader in our program!




Please take a look at the infographic below that Mr. Thompson developed and share this information with anyone you think who may be interested in sponsoring our program!






Special shout out to our prop building crew who worked on Saturday morning to continue the build of our props for this year's production. Big thanks to Michelle Crittenden, Jerry Crittenden, Ken Havens, George Elliot, Christina Nalls, Jimmy Reyes, Chip Thompson, Jasmine Tijerina, Jennifer Tijerina, and Naomy Ybarra for your dedication to our program. 




On Friday, we discussed the official title of our show and it's concept to our students. After many concepts, Mr. Jude Boughton, one of our program coordinators developed the idea of creating an art gallery on the field, and recreating the works of the late Ellsworth Kelly. During Ellsworth Kelly's life he created a few volumes of his work, one of them named, Line Form Color, with some of his most famous works. We will be taking some of these works and putting a Brandeis stamp on the field with them in multiple ways. Below is one of Kelly's works that we have spun into our show shirt for the 2019 production, Ellsworth Kelly: Line Form Color.
