Stay connected with the marching
band through the Band Alumni Society.
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 band performs at all Gopher football home games and at the band's annual indoor concert. The band also performs at an off-campus concert or special event each year.
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 band ensembles, marching band must be taken for credit. Students register for the class, MUS 3480, after they have auditioned.
The School of Music also supports athletic pep bands that play at a variety of regular season and post-season athletic events.
Home opener vs. Buffalo will be on Thursday, August 31, 2017.
Drumline auditions for the 2017 season will take place on Saturday, May 6 at 9:30 am. Download audition materials and more information.
