Villanova Concert Band

Emphasizing the musical nature of the band, the concert band plays a wide range of music from all time periods. These include pieces from the Classical and Romantic eras, various marches, and modern wind ensemble pieces. We play for various university functions such as chair dedications, Candidates Day, the Naval ROTC commissioning, and commencement. We have a Parent's Weekend concert and an annual spring concert. We also take a fall tour every year during our fall break (yes we are one of the only schools to get one, so we take advantage of that) where we perform at various places across the country promoting Villanova University.
