Redcoat Band History on display from 8am-5 pm at the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library.  

Tours of the exhibit will be offered Fridays at 3 p.m. before each home football game, beginning Sept. 2 when the Bulldogs meet the University of North Carolina in Atlanta.

The “Keep your seats…..”  exhibit features memorabilia, photographs, uniforms, and sheet music celebrating the 110-year history of the band. An original copy of the “Red & Black March,” the first music composed specifically for UGA, will be on display. The sheet music, composed in 1908, was thought to have been lost but was discovered by a graduate student researching his dissertation and donated to the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library.   Sheet music composed for the Redcoats by longtime director Roger Dancz is also included.
