I tweeted this afternoon an announcement was coming and USC just sent out that associate director Jake Vogel is the new director of the Trojan Marching Band.
He replaces Art Bartner, who was the director since 1970. I’ve written previously that Vogel was the frontrunner but it took forever to name a replacement.
I heard today Carol Folt was directly involved in the process. And they used a search firm!
From the announcment: “The search process included a nationwide search by Stanton Chase.”
Vogel takes over officially on Jan. 1, 2021.
