We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Columbus State Community College Athletic Department. This new “pick-up” ensemble is open to the public and is FUN, EXCITING, and a chance to support students and athletes at Columbus State while entertaining the crowd.
Details: This ensemble is meant to be fun, and relies on each individual’s goodwill and skill in supporting the Cougar Basketball program! Get ready to cheer, sing, and have fun playing your instrument as we present the first ever athletic band at Columbus State!
