VCU Music offers band for music majors as well as non-music majors. The Symphonic Wind Ensemble, led by Dr. Terry Austin, and University Band, led by Dr. Patrick Smith, rehearse three times per week and perform each semester. Membership into the Symphonic Wind Ensemble is determined by an audition open to all qualified students. No audition is required to participate in the University Band, and it is a great opportunity for non-music majors who participated in band in high school and want to continue playing their instrument in college.
