Department of Music


New for Spring 2022 – join the Pep Band!

If you play a rhythm section instrument or a traditional band instrument, we’d love to have you for this PAID performance opportunity starting in January. Here are some quick details:

  • There will be an audition in the late Fall involving an individual component and a group component.
  • Members chosen for the group will be expected to be at EVERY home basketball game starting on January 6th.
  • You will need to be available for rehearsal on Wednesdays from 3-5 PM, and one extended rehearsal in December (date TBD).
  • You will be paid for each performance. We are still working out the amount, but we expect between $30-50 per game.
  • A meal will be provided for each game (!!!)
  • We will need a Student Director – students with ensemble leadership and conducting experience highly encouraged to apply.

If you are interested, please fill out THIS FORM.
