          For the past 30 years, the LSU Tiger Band has celebrated the close of football season with sights and sounds fans have come to know and love.

            On Nov. 15, LSU fans will once again have a chance to show their purple and gold pride while witnessing one of the most spectacular concert events of the year, as the LSU Tiger Band presents its annual Tigerama event.

            Hosted by the LSU College of Music & Dramatic Arts, the LSU Alumni Association

and corporate sponsor Republic Finance, Tigerama will take place at the Baton Rouge River Center beginning at 8 p.m., with a special VIP reception and auction held prior to the concert. All proceeds from the auction, reception and concert will go toward Tiger Band and the LSU College of Music & Dramatic Arts.

            “The evening includes performances by the LSU Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Winds and Tiger Band, featuring the Golden Girls and Color Guard,” LSU Tiger Band Director Roy King said. “It is a great way to see the best of Tiger Band, as well as a great recruiting tool for our band department.”
