Persons seeking membership in the UCB shall be college age or older and meet proficiency requirements for their chosen instrument. There is no formal audition for membership, however, members may be asked to play for the conductor to determine proficiency.

Membership, seating, and part assignment is determined by the conductor and is subject to change based on the needs of the ensemble.

Membership may be limited by the instrumentation needs of the band as determined by the conductor.


In fairness to other members of the band and to insure the highest level of musical performance, attendance at rehearsals, as well as performances, is vital. Acceptance of membership in the University Community Band is a commitment to be present and prepared for all band events, including rehearsals.
