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 17, 2022
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 2022 Band Day Letter to Directors and complete the 2021 Band Day Registration form by mail, email, or online.
This annual symposium is for current and aspiring band directors. All levels of conductors are invited to attend and participate. Sessions will receive feedback from NIU clinicians. Learn more about the Wind Conducting Symposium.
Red and Black Fall Classic
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.
