The Spartan Marching Band trumpet section consists of 60 members whom all support our four main pillars: Eeph, Beef, Deuce, and Roosk. The trumpets have various game-day traditions; including but not limited to a long-held history of playing “MSC,” or Michigan State College’s original alma mater on Adams Field before the march to Spartan Stadium. The trumpet section contains Spartans from a multitude of majors throughout the University! Feel free to visit our bandtastic trumpets as they perform “MSC” and more on Adams Field on game day!

“It’s incredible how close you can get to your section during a single season. The trumpets are all highly motivated, kind, and inspiring individuals to be around. The friendships I’ve made are irreplaceable. I can’t overstate how happy I am to be part of the trumpet family.”
Every year in the fall, the trumpet section participates in a plethora of fun activities, including taking a trip to a local cider mill! They spend the day taking pictures together, walking through the corn maze, riding the tractor, and (of course) getting some delicious cider and donuts. Not only do they go there as a section, the trumpets often run into other sections visiting too! While the trumpet section prides itself on its close relationships with each other, they also actively try to build close friendships with the other sections in the band.
