“Spirit of the Carolinas” Marching Band

UNC Pembroke Marching Band logo

Welcome to UNCP!

One of the greatest assets of a diversified and balanced band program is that it nourishes the creative spirit at the level of each player's ability and interest. All too often, while developing the mind, students neglect to cultivate their artistic growth and thereby miss an important aspect of human development. Regardless of major or ability, there is a place for you in the UNCP athletic bands.

Once you have been accepted to the university, please complete and submit the interest form linked below to be added to the roster and invited to one of our Dropbox folders.  There is no formal audition for winds (woodwinds/brass); colorguard and percussion should visit the Auditions page after submitting the interest form.

TBD, Director of Athletic Bands

Dr. Joseph Van Hassel, Percussion Coordinator

Dr. Tim Altman, Director of Bands

Dr. Joseph Van Hassel, Interim Department Chair
