Jonathan Waters Named Director of The Ohio State University Marching Band

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Jonathan Waters, interim director of The Ohio State University Marching Band, has been named director of "The Best Damn Band in the Land" this afternoon, according to an announcement by Joseph Steinmetz, executive dean and vice provost, College of Arts and Sciences.

"Jon has been an instrumental part of our university's great marching band for many years, and it's obvious today how successfully he is building on the band's excellence as evidenced by the outstanding performances that we have seen this season," Steinmetz said. "I can't imagine a better fit for our marching band than Jon. He will carry on – and strengthen – the traditions built by Jon Woods, who retired last year."

Jonathan Waters received his bachelors of music education degree from Ohio State in 2000. He was a member of the Ohio State Marching Band from 1995-1999. He served as graduate assistant for the band for the 2000 and 2001 seasons. After receiving two master's degrees in music education and conducting from Ohio State, he was named assistant director. Waters has written band shows for the Marching Band, Spring Athletic Band, and a number of high schools throughout the state.

Waters is a native of Elmore, Ohio and is a 1994 graduate of Woodmore High School.

    When the Reeves Northrup Memorial Bike to the Bay turns 25 this June 21st, it will be extra special for Christine Kajfasz. She has lived with MS for 29 years and will ride in the event for the first time. But this is no easy feet, not for someone with half the horsepower she wishes she could use.
