Jun 16, 2020

On this episode of "On The 50", Dan Schack sits down with Dr. Michael Nickens, Director of Athletic Bands at George Mason University.


Coming to you from Austin, TX, at the FloSports Headquarters, we're starting a brand new project called "On The 50 with Dan Schack" hosted by designer, educator, and much, much more... Dan Schack. During this show, Dan interviews some of the most sought after designers and educators in the marching arts–period.

They discuss judging, design, arranging, the culture of the groups that are excellent year after year, and some of the thought processes that drive the marching arts into the future. This podcast is for performers, educators, fans, and students.

Check out FloMarching every Tuesday and Thursday for new episodes of On The 50.
