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. South Dakota State will be on Thursday, August 29, 2019.
Drumline Auditions for fall 2019 have closed. Please consider auditioning for a pep band at the beginning of September this fall. This will give you an invaluable experience to prepare for your audition next year. Drumline Auditions for 2020 will take place late April or early May 2020.
