SUMBio: Brendan Welch

Name: Brendan Welch

Major: Television, radio and film/ Religion

Hometown: East Lyme, Connecticut

Instrument: Mellophone (maybe trombone this season)

Year: Senior (3rd year in band)

Other things I do on campus: Kappa Kappa Psi (the national honorary band fraternity), Sour Sitrus Society

How I became involved with the SUMB: I saw the SUMB perform my freshman year and immediately started kicking myself for not joining. I had marched two seasons of DCI and thought college band was beneath me – I was wrong. I then randomly became friends with some guys from band that lived in my dorm and joined Sitrus, where I immediately felt at home. I knew the SUMB would be the place for me, and it has been the defining experience of my college career.

Favorite memory: Pretty much everything from my rookie year, the mellophone section was so much fun that season, and the Pinstripe Bowl was icing on the cake.
