As one of the most exciting and visible organizations on campus, the Minnesota Marching Band enthusiastically supports the University's athletic programs and represents the University of Minnesota with pride at home and away. The marching band performs at all Gopher football home games and at the band's annual indoor concert.
Membership in the marching band is open to all interested students. The current band includes students from over 100 different majors and every college at the University. Like all ensembles, Marching Band must be taken for credit.
Students will be notified when they can register for the class, MUS 3480.
