Information about opportunities for your students.
Hosted by the UConn Marching Band
Bring your band to the UConn Campus at 2:45 PM on any Tuesday or Thursday this Fall and we will prepare your own “UConn Band Day” tailored to your program’s musical and/or marching needs. Call or email the UCMB office to reserve your day. We will discuss the experience level of your band and your overall goals for your visit. We’ll plan activities suited specifically to your program.
Your clinic will run from 2:45 to 3:50 PM, and then your students will have the opportunity to observe the UCMB in action from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. You are invited to stay as long as you would like. Some previous participants have chosen to take an ice cream break at the nearby UConn Dairy Bar and return for the full-ensemble portion of the UCMB Rehearsal. Others enjoy the warm-up, fundamental refinement session, sectionals, and eventually full ensemble.
The sky is the limit! Your session might include any of these:
You may want a simple marching and music session with our student leadership team. We also have a unique and effective method of teaching parade marching and parade turns on our field! Or, you may wish to have your band perform a full field show for advice and comment from our staff. At 4:00 PM, the UCMB will take the field for rehearsal. This is a great opportunity for your band and it will give your students a very special experience. Contact us and we will tailor a plan just for your band!
Email us to arrange your “Make Your Own Band Day” at email@example.com. We ask that you include potential dates that will work for your band, up to two session choices, and expected number of students.
Band Day is back! High school bands are invited to join the University of Connecticut Marching Band (UCMB) for a day of rehearsal and an exciting halftime performance at Rentschler Field! This opportunity offers high school musicians a glimpse of what it is like to perform in front of a Division 1 college audience.
