Other Performance Opportunities
The Marching Hundred is only one of several bands found on the IU Bloomington campus. The All-Campus Band is available for non-music majors and does not require an audition to join. Simply register for MUS-X 1, All Campus Band. Many students find it rewarding to be in the Marching Hundred in the fall semester and All-Campus Band in the spring semester.
In addition, the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band are music-major ensembles that present several concerts each semester and rehearse daily. Auditions are required for entrance into one of these groups. The Department of Bands is committed to providing a playing opportunity for every interested IU student. Learn more HERE.
