Symphonic band photo

Our Symphonic Band is the flagship of the university band program. We prepare students for future opportunities as educators and performers, while offering practical experience for them to hone their skills under the direction of renowned musicians and educators.

In addition to several concerts on campus each year, the Symphonic Band tours the region and performs every other year at the South Dakota Bandmasters Convention. Members tour nationally and internationally every three to four years.

Auditions & Rehearsals

Auditions are open to all university students during the first week of the each semester. The band rehearses Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-5 p.m. For more information contact Peter Lillpopp.
