Carl Albert State College Pep Band Prepares for Upcoming Performances

In addition to playing at Carl Albert State College Viking basketball games, the CASC Pep Band has performances scheduled in the community this fall. The band will be at the Balloon Fest October 16th and 17th, at the Poteau Veteran’s Day Parade on November 7th, and at the Poteau Christmas Parade on December 5th.  They also have a performance scheduled during CASC Senior Day on the Poteau campus November 12th.

With 20 band members, the CASC Pep Band director is Dana Dinsmore-Davis and the band is under the direct supervision of student director Jared Pearson.  Pearson stated, “Most of these students were in high school bands across the region, and when they came to Carl Albert they were able to bring their musical abilities with them to be part of our pep band. We have grown tremendously, and it is exciting to see these students help with the success of our band.”  He continued, “We are the beat of CASC, Viking Strong and Proud!”
