Civic Band

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Instrumental Music Ensembles is to provide an opportunity for student and community band and orchestral ensemble musicians to perform the artistically significant literature for their respective ensembles. 

Civic Band and Chamber Orchestra rehearse each week and perform concerts on and off campus each semester.  Pep Band, active only in the fall, provides music and spirit for home football games and University sponsored activities.  Each ensemble is a co-curricular class for which a student may receive up to three credits per semester.
