The Concert Band performing in Carnegie Hall.The University of Kentucky Bands are an integral part of the extensive activities of the School of Music; offering three concert bands, the Wildcat Marching Band and Basketball Pep Band.  Throughout the UK Bands website as well as the CFA School of Music site, you will find lots of information about the various 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. Learn more about the Jazz Ensembles, the Percussion Program, and Percussion Ensembles.
