The Symphonic Band comprises students from majors all across campus. Performing at least twice per semester, programs are selected from some of the most challenging and rewarding music of the entire band repertoire. Recent programs have included music by such composers as Holst, Grainger, Reed, Copland, Shostakovich and Whitacre.
The band has been honored to perform at a number of special events including the regional College Band Directors National Association conference and inaugural ceremonies and concerts for Bucknell presidents. It has hosted in residence such luminaries as composers Frank Ticheli and Sam Hazo, and Broadway’s Ivan Rutherford.
