The Department of Bands exemplifies musical leadership in the wind band field, with three music-major Concert Ensembles (visit Ensembles in above menu), an All-Campus Band, The Marching Hundred, the Big Red Basketball Band and the Crabb Pep Band, as well as the Summer Concert Band that performs outdoor “Sousa-style” concerts. Learn more HERE.
Our repertoire includes band classics, commissioned premieres, chamber music and multimedia collaborative works. Guest soloists regularly include world-renowned faculty from the Jacobs School of Music and others of international stature.
Wind conducting students enjoy plentiful performance opportunities with all the ensembles in a well-rounded conducting program. The IU Jacobs School of Music ensembles are made up of top-notch student performers who train with a world-class performance faculty, all of which leads to an unparalleled education as conductor and musician.

Every summer, the Band Department hosts a week-long intensive music camp for high-school aged students. Learn more about the Summer Music Clinic.
