The University of Texas says Longhorn bandmembers will be required to play the Eyes of Texas.
University officials say they are however giving students options.
The Longhorn Band and the Longhorn Pep Band will still be required to play the school’s alma mater and fight song.
But they are also creating a brand new band starting in the Fall 2022 semester, that would allow students to take part in the marching band but not require them to play The Eyes of Texas.
Officials add, students on scholarship who decide to leave the Longhorn band will not lose their scholarship for the 2021-22 school year.
