The University of Arizona Band Day is a community and educational outreach program for secondary schools throughout the southwest region. This full-day marching band exhibition invites entrants from 30-40 high school bands to perform their half-time shows. These groups are adjudicated by some of the most respected professionals in the music education field today.
Participating bands are rated in eight professional categories, followed by an award ceremony at the end of the day. The distinguished “Nunamaker Award” is presented to the most outstanding group(s) of the festival. The “Pride of Arizona” also appears in two exhibition performances. Band Day provides high school students the opportunity to gain knowledge and expertise as a performing group. They are given a chance to visit The University of Arizona campus and be motivated by observing UA’s “Pride of Arizona” Marching Band in action.
Band Day is open to the public. Admission is purchased at the gate (cash only).
The Pride of Arizona Bands are committed to the strategic vision of the University of Arizona in becoming a leading arts destination that fully embraces collaboration to fuel social impact, cultural development and economic growth in our community, our state, our nation, and worldwide.
