Saturday night, the Arkansas State University Red Wolves will host Southern Methodist University’s Mustangs in the season opener for both teams.  With all of the excitement of the game, you will hear the group of students that will be adding to the excitement throughout the game.  Of course, I am referring to the Sound of the Natural State marching band.  One of the drum majors that will lead the band is Music Education major Anna Rougeau.  She tells a little bit about herself.  She says coming to Arkansas State was just a natural fit.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
