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, Bearly Contained Indoor Drumline/Colorguard, 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.
