Missouri State University

Welcome Recruits!

It is truly an exciting time to be involved with our University Bands.  We are convinced that we have some of the finest university musicians anywhere in the country.

We know for a fact that our students have the best attitudes toward practicing, learning and performing.  And that willingness to work shows up repeatedly every time we win a contest or award, are asked to serve as an honor band in a parade, present a concert, or are selected to perform in an honored venue.

Our student musicians deliver first-class entertainment and they do it with an energy and professionalism that is recognized from coast to coast.

Regardless of your selected major, Missouri State Bands offer an extensive and varied program to meet everyone's needs.  The performance opportunities in symphonic, jazz, marching, show and ensemble settings are almost limitless.

We invite you to check us out!

Sincerely,

Jerry Hoover                     Dr. Belva Prather
