The University of Toledo Rocket Marching Band is one of the largest and most visible student groups on campus! With 250 musicians, dancers, color guard, and majorettes, the RMB is a positive source of pride and school spirit for you as well as the entire UT community. Auditions dates and other information for all sections within the RMB (Woodwinds, Brass, Drumline, Color Guard, Feature Twirler, and Dancing Rockettes) are now available. If you plan to attend UT next fall and are interested in joining the Rocket Marching Band, visit the RMB page for more information.

The concert ensembles are a vibrant part of the Department of Music and the Band Program at UT. The Wind Ensemble (auditioned) and the Symphonic Band perform several concerts throughout the year.  Both ensembles are open to all UT students, regardless of major.  Whether you want to be challenged as a player or just want to have fun playing music, we have an ensemble for you.
