  • Concert Band

    The Concert Band is open to all university students. The band meets three days per week for students who want to make great music, but simply don't have the time to commit to a more involved ensemble. The Concert Band typically consists of approximately 50 musicians, a majority of whom are pursuing degrees other than music. Degrees range from business to education, biology to philosophy. Regardless of the major, all of these students participate in the Concert Band to continue their performance skills on their respective instruments and to escape from the pressures of academic classes.
