Audition Information
Concert Band Program

Everyone is welcome to audition! The Concert Band Program is proud to include students from over 30 majors on campus.

There are two bands during the year: 

  1. UC Davis Concert Band—offered all three quarters—is directed by Pete Nowlen, and is a wind-symphony sized group of about 55 musicians,
    for which an audition is required.
  2. University Campus Band—offered only in Winter and Spring quarters—and is open to all students and community members without an audition. Independent study credit is sometimes available.
