The University of New Haven Chargers Marching Band began in 2009 when football returned to the University. The band consisted of 20 members that first year, borrowing uniforms and equipment from local high schools. The group quickly began to build upon that foundation and rose to 55 members in year two. Seven years later it consists of 262 members, making the UNHMB the fastest-growing collegiate marching band in the country! This event will allow you the opportunity to meet with our Marching Band Director- Jason DeGroff, experience Master Classes with Drumline, Front Ensemble, Color Guard, and Brass/Woodwinds and much more!

*PLEASE NOTE- If you play one of the following instruments, please bring it with you on the day of the event: Flute/Piccolo, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Trumpet orTrombone. We will provide students with the following instruments: Tuba, Baritone, Mellophone, and all percussion equipment.

The University of New Haven provides a hands-on visit opportunity for students who are interested in our Marching Band.

This ensemble is a melting pot of both talent and academic backgrounds. Abilities range from students who have won national and world championships to newcomers who are playing an instrument for the first time! Almost every major on campus is represented in the marching band, including students from as far away as California, Texas, Florida, Alaska, Hawaii, and India!
