University of Cincinnati Bearcat Bands

The UC Bearcat Bands consist of multiple programs for students from all areas of study within the UC university system. These include: The Marching Band, Pep Bands, Concert Bands, Jazz Bands, Color Guard, Drum line, and various small ensembles. 

The Bearcat Bands are structured as academic classes through the College Conservatory of Music, although members do not have to be music majors to qualify for membership.  There are formal auditions for membership.  The Bearcat Band program is administered as an independent unit within the Division of Student Affairs. Along with the support of the university, we are supported by the Rockwern Foundation.

If you are currently a high school band member –or even already in college—and are interested in joining the UC Bearcat Bands, please click on the ‘Potential Members’ link above to receive information about joining.
