Concert Bands 

Two Concert Bands are currently offered during the Spring semester only. There is no audition required to join. Individuals with prior band experience simply need to register for MUSC 101 - Concert Band in order to participate.

Mountaineer Marching Band 

Membership in the WVU Mountaineer Marching Band is open to any West Virginia University student pending a successful audition.  Students may audition before receiving their official university acceptance; however, participation in the Mountaineer Marching Band is dependent on acceptance to WVU.  With the exception of percussion, students who audition for the School of Music and are accepted as music majors do not need to audition if they plan on playing their primary instrument in the Mountaineer Marching Band.  Accepted music majors wishing to play a secondary instrument are required to audition.

Auditions for the 2020 edition of the WVU Mountaineer Marching Band have been completed.
