The University of Nevada Bands
There's a place for everyone in the University of Nevada Bands! We offer a comprehensive band program designed to meet the performance and educational needs of music majors and minors, as well as provide positive musical experiences for students of all majors.
As one of the most recognizable groups on campus, the Wolf Pack Marching Band has proudly been the sound of Wolf Pack Athletics and a musical ambassador since its formation in 1980. Whether performing on campus, or destinations like Honolulu, Chicago, or San Diego, the Wolf Pack Marching Band brings spirit and energy that enhances the game day experience for all who encounter it. Averaging around 200 members each year, this powerful ensemble is comprised of students from nearly every major on campus.
The nationally recognized Nevada Wind Ensemble is the flagship concert band at the University. Using one-per-part instrumentation, the Wind Ensemble performs a broad repertoire of classic and contemporary styles, frequent collaboration with guest artists, recording projects, and concert tours are often on the agenda. The Symphonic Band is a larger concert band, and serves a broad student population from across the University, including many non-music majors.
