Damian Johann, Section Leader & Media Manager

Damian Johann

"Being in the band is a huge responsibility as we set the tone for pride around the campus of Colorado Mesa University... especially on game days. It is well worth the time and effort that it takes. I love being a part of this band and I proudly tell everyone I know that I’m a member of the Maverick Stampede!” The band has helped me grow not only musically, but as a person and a leader. Go Mavs!"

Damian Johann is a junior at Colorado Mesa University. He will graduate in the Fall of 2019 with a Bachelor of Music Education. Upon graduating, he hopes to teach either middle/ high school band or elementary music here in Colorado. While his main instrument is the clarinet, he has played tenor saxophone in the Maverick Stampede for the past three years and has served in various leadership positions, including media manager and as section leader for two of his three seasons.

Damian is heavily involved not only in the Maverick Stampede but also in the Music Department, regularly participating in multiple ensembles each semester and serving leadership positions. He is the former Treasurer of CMU's chapter of Collegiate National Association for Music Education and the current Vice-President. In his free time, he likes to hike, go camping, and hang out with friends.
