About Us

BU Bands consists of the Marching Band, Pep BandPercussion Ensemble, Scarlet Band, Concert Band, All-Campus Orchestra, and Jazz Ensembles.


There are over 200 members on the BU Bands rosters representing every undergraduate school and college on Boston University’s campus. All of the groups provide fun and exciting ways for non-music majors and music majors alike to have the band experience while pursuing degrees in their disciplines.

BU Bands performs for over 200,000 people at over 150 events each year. In addition to performances on campus, the Bands travel often for shows, competitions, and tournaments.

Academics are the top priority for every member of the BU Bands program. All of the ensembles were created with a student’s schedule and vigorous academic commitments in mind. It is easy to academically achieve while participating in any of the BU Bands ensembles, and many of our members excel academically even during the busiest band seasons.
