The College of Arts and Architecture


The Penn State band program is one of the most highly admired and visible university band programs in the United States. Founded in 1899, the program is known for excellence in both its concert and athletic organizations. Committed to providing outstanding musical opportunities for its members, the Penn State concert band program is comprised of four ensembles: Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Concert Band and Campus Band. We extend a warm, most sincere invitation to ALL University Park students, regardless of academic major, class standing or performing ability to participate in one of these outstanding bands.
