OU Bands

The University of Oklahoma Bands offer a variety performing experiences for students regardless of whether you are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate music degree or choose to participate as a non-music major in the cultural life of the University.  Musical collaboration and artistic growth are life-changing opportunities to take full advantage of during your University experience.

The Wind Symphony, Symphony Band, Concert Band and Jazz Ensembles perform in the acoustically rich Paul F. Sharp Concert Hall in Catlett Music Center, while the entire Pride of Oklahoma performs in the exciting venues of the Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium (85,000 fans) for home football games, selected conference and non-conference away games as well as memorable post-season bowl games.  

We hope you will investigate and explore the many opportunities provided by the University of Oklahoma Bands.
