UTC Band Day
UTC Band Day is an annual event that invites area high school band students to be VIP guests of the Marching Mocs for a day!
Students participate in game day activities including a morning rehearsal, pregame and halftime performances, and playing in the stands during the game. Students get the feeling of what it is like to be in a university marching band and are mentored by our very own Marching Mocs. Typically, we have some 300 students join us!
This year, we will be hosting our fifteenth annual Band Day on Saturday, September 17, 2022 during our home game against the University of North Alabama. A special UTC Band Day t-shirt (which must be worn by all student participants), lunch and some UTC swag will be provided for everyone. We hope you can join us!
The registration deadline is September 1. Students register as individual participants, and we will notify their band director of their desire to participate. Students must be accompanied by an adult chaperone and one adult chaperone will be admitted from each SCHOOL having participants. If more than 10 students attend from a single school, a second chaperone will be admitted. Any additional "Family and Friends" who may want to attend the game and Band Day festivities may purchase a ticket online through the UTC Athletics Department at a 20% discount using a code that will be provided to you.
Music for the event will be posted for students to access. No music will be available on the day of the event. Drum majors, color guard members, and majorettes are invited as well. Color guard members should bring their own flag and twirlers should bring their own baton. We will not have a front ensemble. We suggest that those who play in a front ensemble bring cymbals to play for the day.
