The band program at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville is dedicated to stimulating musical growth and providing a comprehensive education to prepare aspiring teachers and performers. The bands provide avocational opportunities for students majoring in disciplines other than music; promote and sustain the proud musical heritage of wind and percussion literature; offer personal rich and unique social contacts; and serve the University from the football field to the concert stage. The UW-Platteville Bands are open to both music majors and non-music majors.
Placement auditions are given during the first week of school for entrance into the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Symphony Band, and Chamber Winds. The placement audition will determine band and chair placement in the Symphonic Wind Ensemble or Symphony Band; Chamber Winds will be selected from the members in these groups. All students who audition will be placed in one of the university bands. Click on the Band Auditions link on the right to download audition material.
