Plan to Attend a Panther Marching Band Open House !

We are excited to invite high school band students who are considering UNI to attend one of our Open Houses this fall! The events are open to high school juniors and seniors who are current members of their high school band. Open Houses occur at each home football game. We will provide free passes for you and your family to attend the football game and sit with the marching band in seats reserved for our guests. We have also arranged for you to attend rehearsal, take a campus tour, and enjoy a reception where you can meet our director and current band students.

This is a great way to meet our staff and students, see our Pregame and Halftime performances, and to experience the excitement of game day at UNI!

Plan a Campus Visit Today!

Prospective students are welcome and encouraged to visit campus to meet with the Director of the PMB, sit in on a rehearsal, meet some of our students, and even to attend a home game (as part of our Band Information Days above)! All of our rehearsals are open, and we invite you to come at any time to see what a typical PMB rehearsal is like. We also encourgae you to contact the Director by phone or email to ask questions and to let us know of your interest in our program. To plan a visit, please contact our Director!
