USF Band-London / iPad Concert

USF Band-London

The USF Herd of Thunder marching band rang in 2013 in style, playing London's New Year's Day Parade in front of a crowd of more than half a million people. University Beat on WUSF TV shows you highlights of their trip, including their performance as the Parade's feature band.

iPad Concert

Whatever Apple ad man came up the phrase “there’s an app for that” wasn’t kidding!
“Touch,” a band of five USF music professors and graduate students, is playing a musical concert at USF, with all the music being created and played on iPads. This week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7 previews this Friday night’s interactive, multimedia show.
