Newcomer makes noise with Pep Band debut

Chancellor Harden plays with Pep BandUW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden left his usual seat in the stands for an end zone spot with the Phoenix Pep Band last Saturday (Feb. 5) as the women’s basketball team hosted Youngstown State.

A trumpet player in his youth who has also played percussion, Harden joined Prof. Eric Hansen’s group after a few weeks of spare-time practice to “get his ‘chops’ back.”

No word yet on how the Pep Band’s newest occasional member acquitted himself, musically, but the band and team had an enjoyable afternoon with a one-sided Phoenix win before a large crowd at the Kress Events Center.
