This year’s biennial trip to the USC vs. Notre Dame game will be Dr. Bartner’s last. The Trojan Family has supported the band’s trips to South Bend since 1973 but we won’t be able to keep this 46-year tradition alive without the support of loyal Trojans like you. The cost of sending the more than 300 students and staff members continues to rise every year. The USC Band / Notre Dame Travel Fund is essential to raising the needed funds. It only takes $100 to become a member. Every dollar raised goes directly toward the flight, hotel and ground transportation costs for each Trojan band member. As a donor to the USC Band / Notre Dame Travel Fund you will receive a commemorative pin with a membership of only $100. It is through the support of alumni, parents and friends like you that this trip will remain possible for future generations of USC band members.
