Open Rehearsal & Cocktail Reception


5 to 7:30 p.m.

Party Deck inside High Point Solutions Stadium

Join us on Friday evening, September 25, for a cocktail reception while we watch the current Marching Scarlet Knights rehearse for their game-day performance. A reception will be held on the Party Deck at High Point Solutions Stadium where guests will be greeted by members of the 100th Anniversary Committee. Special guests from Mason Gross School of the Arts and Rutgers Athletics will attend, and after their rehearsal, Band Director Tim Smith and select undergraduate band members will stop by. But not to worry— this won’t be an evening of speeches! This smaller social gathering will provide a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends.
