Each fall The University of Akron Bands welcomes any High School Junior or Senior who is interested in attending UA and participating in the Zips Marching Band to join us for our annual “Junior/Senior” Day.

Students can bring their instrument, sit with the band and play in the stands, and observe ‘Ohio’s Pride’ The University of Akron Marching Band in pre-game and half-time performance from the 50 yard-line – field level!

Please note: Drummers and Auxiliary performers (colorguard and twirlers) do not need to bring instruments or equipment.  The UA Bands will provide an instrument for Sousaphone players (bring your own mouthpiece).  All other wind players should bring their own instrument (case is optional).
