Welcome to the Rose Band website! The band program at Rose-Hulman is made up of people who want to make great music and have fun doing it.
On behalf of everyone in Rose Bands, welcome! The band program here at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years. We invite you to look around our home page to see some of the things we are doing. Here you can find information about the three main bands that are at Rose-Hulman: the Pep Band, the Jazz Ensemble, and the Concert Band. All three bands have weekly practices, but they are informal and a lot of fun! You can contact the heads of each band on our feedback form.
The Rose Pep Band is a student directed group that plays at all home football games and men's and women's basketball games!
Everyone is welcome to join the Pep Band, so come out for one game, or come out for all of them! The Pep Band is known for free pizza, and cold beverages are available at every game.
Rehearsals are held Thursdays @ 8:30pm in the Band Room during fall quarter.Visit our pep band page!
