Interested in auditioning for a position within the Winds, Percussion, or Color Guard?
Longhorn Band is a year-round (fall and spring) commitment offered as a course. Everyone (including Drumline and Color Guard) must be registered for ENS 207L (undergraduate) or ENS 184L (graduate level) for the fall semester to attend Band Week (Aug. 15th – 21st). If you are not able to register prior to attending Band Week, please communicate your issue here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a member of the Longhorn Band in the Fall you are REQUIRED to be in a Longhorn Band Spring Ensemble (concert band, jazz ensemble, percussion ensemble, color guard).
- Longhorn Pep Band does NOT meet the LHB Spring requirement.
- Music majors in LHB will receive credit for this requirement through their large ensemble (Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, and Symphony Band) participation in the spring.
