Concert Band

The concert band is a campus-wide organization and is open to any University student. This ensemble provides an outlet for musical expression for all wind and percussion performers. Members rehearse once a week and perform one concert at the end of the semester in the fall and twice a week with two concerts in the Spring. In addition, the students are encouraged to rehearse as a section one hour four times a semester. The ensemble performs modern, multicultural, and standard band literature. This ensemble is the only concert band open to any student regardless of ability level.
