Participants are expected to play one of the standard concert band wind or percussion instruments, have some level of prior experience in such an ensemble, and to be able to read music.

The ensemble rehearses and performs during both the fall and spring semesters, usually performing one concert each term. The end of term concert is often shared with the Wind Ensemble.

Although there are no auditions for participation in the group, all players will play a brief excerpt for the director for seating purposes.

Concert Band is an extracurricular activity for many, but can also be taken as a free one-credit elective by registering for MUSC 1905.  The course may be repeated for credit.

The members of the Concert Band come from all backgrounds and majors, and any interested member of the NU community is eligible to join.
