The Coastal Carolina University Bands have been awarded two prestigious honors for the upcoming 2007-08 academic year.

The CCU Spirit of the Chanticleer Marching Band was selected to perform at the Bands of America Fall Preview Experience held at Fort Mill High School on Sept. 22.

CCU was selected from a pool consisting of all college/university bands in the state.

The bands are under the direction of Jim Tully, director of bands, assisted by Kurry Seymour, director of percussion studies and Coastal's assistant band director.
