The 68th Annual University of Arizona Band Day

October 30, 2021


The Fred Fox School of Music is proud to host the 68th Annual Band Day at Arizona Stadium on Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The Southwest’s finest marching bands will participate in this exciting all-day event. The Pride of Arizona Marching Band, under the direction of Professor Chad Shoopman, Associate Director of Bands and Director of Athletic Bands, will also present two performances.

Featuring bands from across Arizona, ranging in size from 30 to over 250 members, each band is evaluated by a panel of expert judges from around the nation in a number of categories including visual execution, musical presentation, and overall performance.

Approximately 10,000 to 15,000 spectators attend Band Day yearly. The morning and afternoon sessions will end with an exhibition performance by the Pride of Arizona Marching Band. This year’s electrifying performance features the music of Panic! At the Disco.
