Music University Band
MUS-234-01 University Band is comprised primarily of the Saint Xavier University Wind Ensemble, an auditioned concert band meeting Mondays and Wednesdays 2:00-3:20 p.m. The fall semester also includes the Cougar Marching Band, which allows students a chance to write music and drill, studying marching pedagogy, while supporting the football team through five regular season Saturday games.
