The Ohio State University Bands

The Ohio State University Bands have enjoyed a wonderfully rich history. From humble beginnings in 1879 as a sixteen-piece commencement band, the Ohio State University Band program has developed into one of national prestige, serving approximately 650 student musicians annually. Students from virtually all degree programs are afforded the opportunity to participate in one of four concert bands, the marching band, and three athletic bands. We encourage all Ohio State University students to experience the thrill and excitement of music making by joining one or more of our ensembles!
