Register for the 2012 CSU Marching Band


We invite you to participate in another great CSU Marching Band season and be a part of history in supporting Coach McElwain’s inaugural season with the CSU Rams! Last year our 260-member band was the largest in the state and the Mountain West Conference, but we don’t care as much about size as we care about quality – WE NEED YOU to carry on our tradition of excellence.

As members of the Ram Marching Band, we work hard to create shows that are entertaining for the crowd, challenge our members to be better musicians and marchers, and display the incredible talent of our band. More than that, though, we are a community of musicians who love putting on a great show for the crowd and show just how proud we are to be CSU Rams. It’s this shared bond that brings us together every fall.

Students in the marching band receive a scholarship award to recognize their service to the university. The amount of the scholarship increases with every year you are in the band, with additional opportunities to increase your scholarship by meeting academic requirements or playing with the Presidential Pep Band.

Travel will play an important role for the 2012-2013 edition of the Ram Marching Band. We are finalizing our fall schedule and have planned day trips to the Rocky Mountain Showdown in Denver, the 9NEWS Parade of Lights, and the Thompson Valley CBA Regional. Of course, this is all in addition to our historic trip to Dublin, Ireland to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in March 2013.

As you can see, this is shaping up to be a tremendous year for the Ram Marching Band and we need your help to make this happen. Bring a friend and continue to use your musical talent to support the Rams! For more information, including details for percussion and color guard, visit us on the web at:
