Concert Band

The Concert Band is open to membership from the student body as a whole as well as to students whose major is in music. Rehearsals begin in November at the conclusion of marching band activities and continue through the Spring Semester. An audition is not required for membership in the band; prior experience, however, playing a wind or percussion instrument is a prerequisite. 

Excellent university instruments are available for individuals who may need them. The Concert Band performs the best literature from the standard repertoire for the modern wind band as well as striking contemporary works. The band recently has featured professional soloists and has premiered several new and newly arranged or edited works.  Concerts take place both on campus and at other locations, and the ensemble has toured, and performed at numerous high schools throughout the tri-state region.
