Who We Are

Fall 2017 will be the inaugural year for the Concordia University Marching Cardinals. The Marching and Pep Bands are open to members of the CUAA community who play a band instrument or have experience in color guard. Scholarships of $2,000 are available to incoming students for participation in these groups.

Where We Perform

The Marching Band plays at all home football games. A smaller pep band made up of members of the marching band plays at selected men's and women's home basketball games, and the entire band travels to the annual Concordia Invitational Tournament each January.

When We Meet

The Marching Cardinals will rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays (7:40 to 8:55 a.m.) each week during football season during the fall, and on Saturday mornings on Game Days. An annual pre-season band camp will be held for at least one week in August to prepare for the marching season.
