The EMU Marching Band has a long tradition of musical and entertainment excellence. Comprised of nearly 200 students, the EMU Marching Band represents nearly every major on campus. The band has a rich 120-year history of serving EMU at athletic functions, parades, and events. The Marching Band performs for all home football games; participates in Homecoming, Band Night, and Family Day activities; performs exhibitions at area and national marching band festivals and competitions; and travels to one or two away games each year. Membership is open to any student in the university by audition and field try-out at the annual pre-season Band Camp, held in August prior to the Fall Semester.
Fill out our student interest form via the link above with your current contact information and instrument(s) of choice (i.e. trumpet/color guard/twirler).
