Whether performing in world-class concert halls or historic athletic venues, the Holy Cross Bands are committed to serving and engaging the campus community with quality music, excellent people, and enjoyable experiences.
The first band at Holy Cross was founded in 1845, as the “College Brass Band.” Since our inception, bands at Holy Cross have grown to include four separate ensembles supporting Athletics, the music department, and the Holy Cross community.
Our bands include the Goodtime Marching Band, Crusader Pep Band, and Holy Cross Wind Ensemble. Additionally, we support the Holy Cross Jazz Ensemble and offer exploratory programs for true beginners including our spring drumline clinic. Individual lessons can be taken from those who participate in our ensembles as well.
Be sure to contact our band office should you need additional information. Holy Cross Bands is part of the Division of Student Affairs.
