The Band Department offers a comprehensive program to the university community. More than 250 students participate in our performing ensembles, making Georgia State Bands one of the most visible groups on campus. Ensembles within the band program have accepted invitations to perform at prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, the College Band Directors National Association Southern Division Conference, the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C., and the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The Band Department offers several programs for secondary school students each year, including Marching Band Day, the Music for All Southeastern Regional Concert Festival, and the Summer Leadership Institute.
