CSU Band Day

This Fall, the Colorado State Marching Band will host the inaugural CSU Band Day with CSU Athletics. Join us for this special event at the CSU vs. Utah Tech game on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023!

This is an opportunity for high school students to participate in a college gameday experience with an on-field performance alongside the CSU Marching Band in front of thousands of Ram Fans in Canvas Stadium. No prior marching experience is required!  

The CSUMB is partnering with CSU Athletics to provide a full-day experience for you and your students that includes discounted tickets to the CSU vs. Utah Tech game, a t-shirt for participants, a full rehearsal on the field in Canvas Stadium with the CSUMB, a front-row view of the Ram Walk Pep Rally and Parade, and, of course, a half-time performance with the Colorado State Marching Band.  We would love to host your entire band or If you just have individual students that would like to participate, they are more than welcome too!  Individual students with a parent or guardian, or small groups with a designated chaperone or band director are also encouraged to participate.

Register for CSU Band Day by Friday, September 22. 


Additional Details

  • Participating students will receive an event t-shirt that they will wear as their on-field performance attire.
  • Participating students will need to provide their own instrument/equipment and any other items (flip-folder, lyre, sticks, etc.) that they need for performance.
  • Participating directors will receive a free ticket to the game.
  • Each participating school (even if there is only one student attending) must have at least one parent/director/chaperone present for the full day. This person will be the responsible party for those students and will need their own ticket to the game (free for directors). Parents/families are invited to attend and can receive the same ticket discount as participating students in the same seating block.
