Band Directors —
I am pleased to invite you and your students to participate in UTSA’s inaugural “Spirit of San Antonio Band Youth Showcase” on Saturday, Nov. 9.
It is our goal to make the “SOSA Youth Showcase” an unforgettable experience unlike anything offered at other colleges in the state. Therefore, rather than simply having your students sit and watch the Spirit of San Antonio UTSA Marching Band perform, they are invited to play along with us on the field during halftime for the largest audience many of them have ever seen.
Due to the expected popularity of the event we will have to limit the number of participants on the field. The expected response is very large and we have a limited amount of space, both on the field and in the stands. Therefore, I urge you to get your lists in as soon as you can.
The cost for the “SOSA Youth Showcase” is only $35 for students and $15 for additional family, friends, and chaperones. For that price, the students will receive a field-level ticket, an official UTSA Band T-shirt, transportation to the Alamodome, and lunch. Directors and their spouse will receive complimentary tickets and meals as our guests. If the spouse is unable to attend, the second ticket can be given to a second staff member. The athletics department has set aside 1,000 tickets for us for this game. Registration forms and payment must be in our office by Wednesday, Oct. 9, but I remind you that this is first come-first served so if the 1,000 seats are spoken for before that time there is nothing that we can do.
Please read all of the attached information closely. The event will be coordinated this year by the UTSA Ticket Office. They will gladly help you with any concerns or questions, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
or (210) 458-UTSA (8872).
It is an exciting time to be part of UTSA and I hope that you and your students can join us for a day full of music, football, and fun.Ronald EllisDirector of Athletics Bands
