Join THE UCONN DRUMLINE
Any student attending The University of Connecticut is eligible to join the drumline. Membership is obtained through a simple audition. Of more than 300 members of the UCMB, only about one sixth major in music. Almost every college and major course of study within the University is represented throughout the band. In addition, the overall grade point average of band members is significantly above the University average. Band members are almost always the students who want to excel in their classes - many are enrolled in various UConn Honors program. The UCMB helps students develop a work ethic which carries over to their studies and eventually their careers.
During the fall term, rehearsals are scheduled Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 4:00-6:00 p.m. The drumline has an additional rehearsal Tuesday night from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
The drumline holds several mini camps throughout the summer to learn new material and prepare for the upcoming season. The band also holds a preseason camp the week before the fall semester begins. This gives band members an added bonus of moving in with ease before the hectic move-in day on campus. Click here for a list of 2012 camp dates!
