Spirit of the Gate

Dear New & Returning Members of the Wingate University Band Program,
For those that I haven’t spoken with, my name is Joseph Girgenti and I am honored to be the Director of Athletic Bands. As a member of Wingate’s Class of 2015, I am proud to serve my alma mater in this capacity. I have spent the last nine years teaching band and general music to students in Pre-K through 12th grade, and had the privilege of being the Interim Pep Band Director at Wingate this past fall.

Our current students have been working diligently to help me in many of the logistical and foundational aspects of this new venture. It is with great pleasure that I announce all of the exciting developments regarding our new marching band. The inaugural season for the Spirit of the Gate is going to be one full of hard work and fun. Please review the following information to prepare to join the Spirit of the Gate!
