Concert/Campus Bands

  • UW Concert Band Ensemble
    Concert Band

Meets Wednesday 7:00-9:00 p.m. in Meany Hall Room 268 (Concert Band) and School of Music Room 35 (Campus Band)

The Concert and Campus Bands are both non-auditioned ensembles with members comprised of current UW students (most of which are non-music majors), UW alumni, UW staff and Seattle area community members. Both ensembles play music of similar difficulty under the baton of conducting graduate students and perform one concert per quarter.

On the first day of rehearsal, members of both bands meet in Meany Hall 268 with their instruments to self-divide into the two ensembles, section by section so that the instrumentation of both ensembles are balanced. Rehearsing then begins right away after the bands part for their respective rooms. 

Students registering for the course can do so before the first rehearsal if they know for certain which ensemble they would like to join, or can change their course code after the first rehearsal.

Concert Band: Wed, 7:00p-9:00p, Meany Hall 268; Campus Band: Wed, 7:00p-9:00p, School of Music 35

No audition necessary; meet on first day of rehearsal in Meany Hall 268.
