72 Guest Twirlers Join the Razorback Marching Band for Twirler Day

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Razorback Marching Band will host 72 young twirlers for its inaugural Twirler Day Saturday, Sept. 14. The guest twirlers will perform with the band and University of Arkansas Twirlers during halftime when the Arkansas Razorbacks take on the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.  

"Twirler Day gives young twirlers who are considering continuing the sport in college the opportunity to experience the thrill of college game day," said Ashley Moss, University of Arkansas twirler instructor. "There is nothing better than twirling for Hog Nation fans."

The guests include twirlers from first grade to twelfth grade. They will participate in the Razorback Marching Band's Saturday morning rehearsal at the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion. After the rehearsal, the twirlers will march into the stadium, join the band in the stands and perform a routine to the second song in the Beatles Show, I Saw Her Standing There.

"We have an awesome band program that is very supportive of our twirlers," said Moss. "We want more kids to know about us and put the University of Arkansas at the top of their college list."

Moss was a feature twirler for the Razorback Marching Band. She is a 2006 graduate of the university and holds a bachelor of science in kinesiology from the College of Education and Health Professions.

Along with the twirlers, Twirler Day will also include approximately 160 family members. The Razorback Marching Band, part of the department of music in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, has more than 340 student members representing every college within the university.
