This will be my second year in SOSA and first on trumpet staff. I joined SOSA because I love the marching activity especially the nature of it here in Texas and I wanted to meet some new people at UTSA that also have the same passion for the activity.

Alejandro Martinez 

Hometown/School: Communications Arts HS (Taft HS) in San Antonio, TX

Major: Music Education

Classification: Junior

Instrument: Trumpet

This will be my third year in SOSA and my second year on staff! I'm in SOSA because I know I'd miss the feeling of performing in a marching band too much. Likes long walks to lot 13, video games, spending half my paycheck on one meal, band, and trying with minimal success to be funny. I am also a brother of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia!
