Being a member of the University Band is one of the most enriching, memorable, and worthwhile experiences you will ever have. You will grow personally and emotionally, develop your artistic and athletic abilities, and forge lifelong friendships. If you are interested in becoming a member of the University Band, welcome!
The University Band is committed to providing the best possible music education experience for all of our students. Here are some of the opportunities you'll find:
Questions? Contact a band director or get the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.
Auditions for our wind ensemble, symphonic band, big band, and advanced percussion ensembles. Incoming students can schedule an audition after school by contacting a director.
At Open House, you'll learn everything you need to know if you are considering joining the University Band. We will also reveal the music, props, and design concepts behind our 2019 production! This meeting is for parents as well as students.
From Open House until the Icebreaker, an "early deposit" option is available for $65.
Are you a percussionist? Interested in playing with our drumline or front ensemble? These are for you! Students will learn marching percussion technique and set placement for next year.
These clinics are for anyone interested in our award-winning color guard. No experience required... come check it out!
The icebreaker is our first official rehearsal for next year's band. Official band registration happens on this night, and you will meet our instructional staff and get to know your section members! Bring your instrument!
We will start the summer off right... with band! At Mini-Camp we start digging into our show music and learning how to march.
The $75 deposit is due on the second day of Mini-Camp to secure a spot in the show.
These "mandatory-if-you're-in-town" rehearsals help us to jump right in at band camp, and are way better than sitting at home staring at your phone.
This is the first full week of training for students on in our leadership team, percussion section, and color guard.
Band Camp is mandatory for everybody and is when we will learn the majority of our fall production.
