USU Bands

Bands are a vital part of the Department of Music and the campus life at Utah State University. The Aggie Marching Band and Pep Band make an exciting contribution to USU Athletics, while the Wind Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Cache Wind Symphony perform the finest in wind and percussion literature year-round. In addition, our outstanding Jazz Bands perform the best in new and classic jazz literature.

Although many members of the bands are Music majors, members of USU Bands represent every academic unit on campus. Whatever your major area of study, professional aspirations, time allotments, or taste in musical style, there's a band for you at USU!
