New Members

If you are interested in becoming part of the all the exciting opportunities the University Band can offer, welcome!

Without a doubt, being a member of the Band Program is one of the most enriching, memorable, and worthwhile experiences available to students at University High School. You will grow personally and emotionally, develop your artistic and athletic abilities, and forge positive, lifelong friendships.
