The Villanova Band is open to all who have the desire to pursue music as an extracurricular activity at Villanova. We stress that our band is not a big time commitment, nor is it designed for music majors. Rather, it provides an opportunity to those who play because they enjoy doing so. Everyone involved is a member because they want to be one. Unlike high school, no one's parents are forcing him or her to stay in because, "it looks good for college," or because, "it's an easy A to boost your average." Villanova band members are true amateurs which comes from the Latin word meaning to love what you do. We accept all members regardless of musical ability.
The Villanova Band is one of the most active organizations on campus. We perform for various university functions throughout the year. We are most visible as a Pep Band at Villanova basketball games; however, we do a lot more. The Villanova Band operates as the University's Pep Band, Scramble Band, and Concert Band all in one. We have a GREAT time during the year, probably better than any other organization on campus. It is an exciting and rewarding experience that continues even after you graduate. In addition, students can join the Jazz Band regardless of whether or not they are in any of the other bands.
