Members of the Longhorn Band will be required to perform “The Eyes of Texas” Alma Mater at future sporting events.

However, a new marching band, which will be created by the university in Fall 2022, will not be required to play the songs.

On Wednesday night, leaders from the College of Fine Arts, Butler School of Music and University Bands announced plans for the new band along with plans to provide scholarships and waive participation fees for band members.
