“It was the “Pride of the Peninsula”, the Eastern Michigan University Marching Band. Whether EMU held the lead or trailed behind, their marching band kept the student section energetic, bobbing their heads, and dancing on their feet. For that, you can thank Dr. Chandler Wilson, the newly appointed director of the Eastern Michigan University Marching Band. Recently, Wilson obtained his Ph.D. in music education with an emphasis in conducting from Florida State University. Prior to that, he received his Master of Arts in Wind Band Conducting from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. ”
