Interested in continuing performing instrumental music at a collegiate level? Interested in learning a new instrument? Love performing music? There is a band for you! There are three bands at John Carroll – Pep Band, Jazz Band, and Concert Band.
Pep Band consists of a diverse group of individuals who love to play music and have fun! There are members of all ages, from freshman to alumni, and all skill levels. The Pep Band plays primarily at the football and basketball games during the fall and spring semesters respectively.
Jazz Band is open to musicians of all skill levels interested in playing jazz. The Jazz Band performs not only at JCU, but also at various festivals around Cleveland in both the fall and spring semesters.
Concert Band is a more traditional group for those interested in playing a variety of pieces, from Mozart to Menken. The Concert Band meets and performs in the spring semester.
