Band Day 2024

Each fall, dozens of high school bands join the University of Massachusetts Minuteman Marching Band, the Power and Class of New England, for a day of rehearsal and a thrilling halftime performance. Not only is this great fun for all participants, it offers high school musicians a glimpse of what it is like performing in front of a college audience.

This year, Band Day will be held on October 26th, 2024! Registration for band day is available, and the deadline to register is October 5th. Here is more information on this year's band day!
