Must like heights

Band practice

Cyclone Football Varsity Marching Band director Steven Smyth (in lift) adopts a bird's-eye view to survey a rehearsal session earlier this week. The band's dedicated practice facility is west of the Communications Building in the northwest corner of campus. After nearly three weeks since its last performance at Jack Trice Stadium, the band was polishing its halftime show for the Iowa State-Texas football game Thursday evening. Photo by Bob Elbert.
