The Notre Dame Band is one of the premiere performing groups on campus. During the football season emphasis is placed on pep band. The band plays for all home games, and most away games. If you are on the football team, you play the music during class but are with the football team at games. The majority of band members participate in athletics. It is a pep band so there are no after school rehearsals. Concert literature will be performed throughout the year and become more of a focus after football season. The band gives a Christmas Concert and a Spring Concert. Attendance at these events outside of class is required.
