Welcome to the online home of the Sycamore Bands of Indiana State University!
Each and every one of our ensembles is open to ALL students on campus, regardless of major. While some groups (Wind Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Marching Sycamores Drumline, Sycamore Color Guard) require an audition, others are open to all (Marching Sycamores woodwinds and brass, Sycamore Basketball Band woodwinds and brass, Concert Band).
It is our goal to be as inclusive as possible. If you miss playing your instrument (or spinning a flag/rifle/baton), we can find an ensemble that will fit your ability level and motivation. You do not have to be a music major in order to participate. In the past, our ensembles have been represented by majors from all across campus, including (to mention only a few) Athletic Training, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Communications, English, History, Marketing, Mathematics, Philosophy, Political Science, Pre-Law, Pre-Med, Psychology, Special Education, and many, many more!
