Audition for the 2018 Famous Maroon Band

Auditions for the 2018 Famous Maroon Band are now underway! High school seniors and community college transfer students are invited to audition this semester to join us for Fall 2018. There are so many reasons to join--music, friends, and experience of being in a "big time" SEC band--just to name a few. Scholarships are available to students regardless of major, and the time commitment is much less than most people think. Want to find out more? Click "How Do I Join?" at the top of the page.
