UCA Bands

Whether you are a first time visitor or already a friend of the band, you will find a lot of information about the UCA Bands here on our site.  Our strength is the diversity of the programs and ensembles we offer our students.  Students get world-class opportunities with a personal connection.  We offer a comprehensive program of three concert bands, three jazz ensembles, our Bear Marching Band, the Purple Rage Pep Band, and a wide variety of chamber ensembles. Our wind and percussion faculty are internationally recognized for their artistry and teaching.  Unique to our band program is the close interaction of the applied faculty with our entire program.  YOU BELONG to the UCA band family.
