Winds & Percussion
The Band Program at the University of Texas Arlington is a comprehensive program encompassing all types of performing organizations and opportunities. In our three concert ensembles and marching band, we strive to provide positive musical opportunities that are important for those students who are preparing for careers in music as well as those non-majors who simply enjoy performing. No matter what your major, you will find the UTA Bands to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
