Welcome to the Flutes/Piccolos/Oboes (Fliccoboes)!

Hello there!

I’m Audrey, the fliccoboe/flobolo/flute, oboe, and piccolo section leader for the 2020-2021 school year. I’m thrilled to welcome you to the Marching Owl Band, as well as to the page for the best section ever! Since you’re on this page, that hopefully means that I’ll have the pleasure of inviting you to our amazing fliccoboe family! Whether or not you’ve played for years or you just picked up your woodwind stick instrument (that’s not a clarinet or bassoon) yesterday, we welcome you with open arms and fun events!

Along with the MOB’s other fun activities, like karaoke nights, Louie Cup tournaments, and of course cheering on Rice teams with wonderful musical performances, the fliccoboe section would love to have you for our movie marathons and boba meetups. As these events suggest, the MOB is more relaxed than a typical marching band, and you can come and go as you feel, including within sections (so tell your friends to join the fliccoboes too!), but regardless of whether you play fliccoboe or just pop into our events, the other members and I would love to get to know you and see you around! Additionally, don’t stress about having to practice every day or attending every performance. Even if your schedule keeps you from us, the MOB will always welcome you with open arms!

I hope to see you around this coming school year, whether over a computer screen or six feet apart on campus, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions you have! Even if I don’t know the answer, I probably know someone who will! I can’t wait to meet you and show you how much fun the fliccoboes have!

-Audrey C.
