The UConn Marching Band will host an open house for new members on Saturday, July 14th. New members will get an inside look at being a part of The Pride of Connecticut! The day will begin with an informational meeting. Throughout the day, we will begin to teach the basics of our marching style and play through some music for the upcoming season. Although attendance is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged to offer new members a head start. Parents and family members are welcome to attend.

  • Discover that you can successfully perform in a college band
  • Learn how the UCMB will enhance your academic experience at UConn
  • Have questions answered by students and parents
  • Make friends before the first day of preseason
  • Begin learning our style of music

On June 30, the UCMB will be holding a camp for drumline, front ensemble, color guard, and leadership training. New members of all sections and returning wind players are invited and encouraged to attend! If you are interested, please email for more information. We look forward to seeing you soon!
