Welcome!

Whether your interest is concert or percussion ensembles, jazz band, marching band or private lessons, there is a place for you here.

The University of Kentucky Bands are an integral part of the extensive activities of the Winds, Percussion and Jazz Division of the College of Fine Arts School of Music; offering three concert bands, the Wildcat Marching Band and Basketball Pep Band, and several jazz and percussion ensembles.  Throughout the UK Bands website as well as the CFA School of Music site, you will find lots of information about the various wind and percussion ensembles offered at UK, potential scholarship resources for music majors AND non-majors, and frequently-asked questions about the UK Bands. All ensembles are open to any UK student, regardless of major. If you plan to major in music, however, you will need to audition and be accepted into the School of Music. For more information about the School of Music and the audition process, consult the School of Music Auditions.

If you have any questions about the various wind and percussion ensembles, or would like to schedule a visit, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email. We look forward to seeing you on campus very soon!
