Band Day

Join us for an exciting day of music at the UNI Dome with the Panther Marching Band!

Band Day is ideal for entire marching bands or individual high school band students in grades 9-12. Come join us for an outstanding, positive, and friendly musical and social experience for high school band students! We hope you will enjoy the fellowship with other band students throughout the state and the fantastic performance of a massive band, playing to one of the most appreciative audiences in the country!

Directors who wish to bring their full band or a smaller group of band students should find this to be an easy and fun event to organize and attend!

Individual students who wish to participate as single performers are strongly encouraged to attend! You will have a chance to meet our fantastic students and perform in a friendly, welcoming environment!
