Join the Cal U Band today!

Cal U Marching Band

As one of the largest organizations on campus, Cal U's marching band is made up of students from diverse areas of study and whose previous experience is from a wide range of high school music programs. Each fall, the marching band rocks the crowd at the Vulcans' home football games and selected away games and also performs in high school and college marching band festivals.

Membership is open to any interested student instrumentalist.  Auditions are held in the early summer for students interested in color guard, feature twirler, and drum line.

Marching Band may be taken as a one credit course and is repeatable up to eight credits.
