The UC Davis Concert Band Program has existed on the campus for more than 50 years, performing in commencements, ceremonies, and its own concerts.

The UC Davis Concert Band is an auditioned wind-symphony sized group of about 55 musicians and plays during the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters.  Both groups are open to all students, professors, alumni, and community members. The Concert Band Program is proud to include students from over 30 majors and minors on campus.

In their quarterly concerts at the Mondavi Center, the band performs classic works from the extensive band and wind ensemble repertoire, as well as transcriptions of symphonic pieces and the finest new works for band and wind ensemble. The band also travels and tours other campuses, recently including Sacramento State University and the University of the Pacific.

The bands host the biannual Causeway Youth Band Festival, where guest composers/conductors are invited to UC Davis as clinicians. The Causeway Band Festival includes two festival bands for high school and junior high students. Past guest conductors include Samuel Hazo, Mark Camphouse, and Frank Ticheli.

Rehearsals for the UC Davis Concert Band (MUS 143) are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:10-6:00 PM in Music 105.
