Panther Band participation is open to any admitted GSU student, or any student from an institution that does not have a marching band program, following a successful audition. Students may audition before they have received their official acceptance. Those who major or minor in Music undergo different audition procedures than students in other areas of study.
You do not have to be in the School of Music to participate!
Anyone who is accepted as a Music Major in the Georgia State School of Music on a wind instrument is automatically accepted for membership in the Panther Band if they wish to participate. Those students must email Dr. Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org before May 30, 2018 in order to be guaranteed a position.
A separate Panther Band audition is not necessary for wind instrumentalists who are accepted as Music Major on a wind instrument.
Separate auditions for the Panther Band Drumline, Color Guard, and Rock Band are required by anyone interested.
