Penn State Blue Band Audition Applications Now Open

The Penn State Blue Band is now accepting audition applications for the 2024-2025 season.

All students who attend the University Park campus are welcome to join the Blue Band. All members, returning and new, must audition each year, and new members will join through competitive auditions.

Students who are selected to become members have the opportunity to perform at every home football game for the upcoming season.

Those who are interested in joining must fill out an audition application including their major, estimated graduation year, and the section they are interested in. An email with more information about the audition procedure, including dates for the audition and instructions for submitting videos, will be sent out to those who have completed the application process.

The audition application can be found here.
