“PNNMB is not only the best thing that has happened to this University, but also the most exciting part of my tenure here at UNC Charlotte!"
Brianna Douglas is a senior at UNC Charlotte, majoring in physics and minoring in music. After graduation, she plans to continue her education at the graduate level, concentrating in astrophysics and astronomy. This is her second year in PNNMB, and she now serves as a member of the Student Leadership Staff in the role of clarinet section leader. She holds the duties of keeping the clarinet section (a.k.a. “CSQUAD”) musically apt, together with marching and also keeping the section a family (and up to date on their notorious dance skills!).
Brianna proudly describes herself as a military child. She was born in Fayetteville, NC and has traveled the world, living in over six different places (including overseas in Okinawa, Japan). Although Brianna attended three different high schools, she graduated from L.C. Bird High School in Chesterfield, VA in 2013. While there, she marched clarinet and was field commander of the Skyhawk Marching Band her senior year. Brianna claims that the best part of being in marching band is having a family that accepts you for who you are, and comes together to make music. In her free time, she likes to jam out to all types of music and hang out with friends.
Here’s what Brianna has to say about the PNNMB:
“PNNMB is not only the best thing that has happened to this University, but also the most exciting part of my tenure here at UNC Charlotte! The band really gets the fans hype, and seeing the positive feedback we get from them is amazing. PNNMB has helped me learn how to balance my school and personal life, while still including band. I look forward to game days and just coming to practice to be around great people and the best spirit squad at UNC Charlotte!”
