Resources for Music Educators

The Huskie Marching Band regularly partners with area high school marching bands to enhance the learning opportunities for high school musicians. We annually hold two events in which we invite high school bands to participate.

High School Band Day
September 25, 2021

Once a year, high school bands are invited to join us on the field during halftime of a Huskie football game to perform a halftime show after a morning of rehearsals. This is a great chance for the students in your band to participate in a collegiate band performance.

To participate in NIU Band Day, please download and read the 2021 Band Day Letter to Directors and complete the 2021 Band Day Registration form by mail, email, or online.

Red and Black Fall Classic
September 18, 2021

Administered by the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps, this fall marching band competition allows high school bands to showcase their skills in a judged competition. The Huskie Marching Band also performs as part of the event.
