USU Bands Frequently Asked Question
What bands are there at USU?
Are there auditions for the bands?
Our flagshipe concert band. Auditions held during first week of classes each semester. See the Band Bulletin Board (Room 113, Chase Fine Arts Center) the first week of each semester for audition materials.
Contact Dr. Lane Weaver to be added to the summer contact list. We will begin sending updates and information near the end of the spring semester. Once you have contacted Dr. Weaver you can enroll in MUSC 3785.
Further information can be found on the Aggie Marching Band page. All AMB members should plan on attending AMB Camp the week before classes begin in the fall.
Auditions occur at the beginning of October. The Aggie Pep Band is open to all with preference given to Aggie Marching Band members. Audition announcements will be posted on the Band Bulletin Board and shared in Aggie Marching Band rehearsals. Contact Dr. Lane Weaver for more information.
The only audition for this ensemble is for chair placement. Simply register for the class, and attend the first rehearsal with instrument in-hand.
Auditions for the Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble take place during the first week of classes. Auditions are sight-reading only. See the Jazz bulletin board in the Music Department for details.
I'm concerned about the time commitment.
Will marching band hurt my academic record?
