The DUMB flute/piccolo section is by far the most awesome section in the entire Duke Marching Band! We carry the only instruments small enough to fit in your pocket, we dance to all of the stands tunes, we have lots of section bonding time and we have undoubtedly the best section swag ever (you can spot us a mile away). No need to fear, ear plugs can be worn during sectionals to prevent the damage that ensues when multiple flutes and piccolos all play in an enclosed space!
We’re a diverse group of people. We’ve got chemistry majors, history majors, tree-huggers, a salsa dancer, an actress, people from Alaska, Wisconsin, Florida and everywhere in between, French speakers, Polish speakers and many other cool things. But we all have one thing in common: we love being DUMB flutes!
One of the best parts of being in the flute section is that we are always dancing in the stands! We love making up dance moves and naming them after ourselves.
Even when we’re not dancing, we are still having a blast at rehearsals or games.
We also love to have quality section bonding time outside of band. There’s nothing quite like the flute family!
Plus, you KNOW you want one of these sweet hats.
We can’t wait to have you join us! If you have any questions, feel free to email the flute/piccolo section leaders, Colleen Mumford (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Kara Post (email@example.com))!!!
