Students who wish to apply for the positions of drum major, section leader, colorguard captain, or WMB Council member-at-large must apply by Saturday, March 26th at 11:59 PM.
Auditions for drum major, section leader, and colorguard captain will be held on Monday, March 28th at 6:00 p.m. in the Band Room (PCAC M226). WMB Council members-at-large will be selected after auditions.
Requirements for student leaders:
- You must be a current UNH student and have completed at least the previous full season with the Wildcat Marching Band.
- You will be evaluated primarily by your audition/application, but we will also take into account ways you have previously exhibited leadership, honesty, dependability, responsibility, respect of peers, and ability to work well within the band.
- Student Leaders will be required to attend tentative leadership sessions later in the semester, plus a leadership day prior to band camp. Dates and times will be determined after student leaders have been selected.
- If you are interested only in a WMB Council member-at-large position, you do not need to attend auditions. Please complete the application to be considered.
School groups are cordially invited to attend the 18th annual University of New Hampshire Band Extravaganza. This exciting concert will feature the UNH Wind Symphony and the Wildcat Marching Band in the Johnson Theater. We will be performing three matinees for school groups and would like to encourage you to plan a field trip with your music students. Don't miss out!
Give to the Wildcat Marching Band
Donations go toward the general operating expenses of the band, including travel, instruments, uniforms, and other equipment. We appreciate your support!
Every year, our budget is stretched to its limit paying for travel expenses, band camp housing and meals, staff salaries, equipment, copyright fees, field lining, photocopies, repairs, and more. Because of this, we have no budget to replace instruments or to implement new technology. The band is also in a growth period, which means increased costs against a static budget.
We are beginning a campaign to raise funds to supplement our travel budget, to replace equipment that has reached the end of its useful life, and to expand the electronic front ensemble.
This went home to prospective members of the 2015 Wildcat Marching Band. If you didn't get it, read on!
