Cornhusker Marching Band

Cornhusker Marching Band

Director: Anthony Falcone

Founded in 1879, the University of Nebraska band program has grown from a single small ROTC band to encompass five ensembles that perform for a combined audience of well over 700,000 people annually. The University of Nebraska Cornhusker Marching Band is a group of dedicated marching musicians that carry on the proud tradition of excellence that has been upheld and handed down for over 125 years. The "Marching Red" is one of the best and best-known collegiate bands in the country and is one of the few college bands to have performed at every major bowl game. The 290-piece ensemble includes woodwinds, brass, percussion (battery and pit) and color guard.

Membership in the Cornhusker Marching Band is determined by audition, and music majors as well as non-majors are encouraged to try out. There are two rounds of auditions: the first round takes place in May and the final round takes place before classes begin in August. Audition music and schedule information can be obtained from the Band Office (Westbrook Music Building, room 101, 402-472-2505). Contact Anthony Falcone or the Band Office (Westbrook Music Building, room 101, 402-472-2505) for additional information.
