The Maryland Pep Band plays at all men's and women's home basketball games.

You'll never have to worry about getting a seat because your instrument is your ticket!

The Pep Band completes the "Student Wall" in the Xfinity Center, helping cheer the Terps to victory.

Members of Pep Band also travel to post-season tournaments; prior destinations have included Anaheim, San Francisco, Orlando, Tallahassee, Knoxville, Denver, New Orleans, Phoenix, Minneapolis and Charlotte.

Though activities occur over both fall and spring semesters, Pep Band is only offered as a course (one credit) during the spring semester. Auditions are held during the fall, and the ensemble rehearses once a week during the fall & spring semesters beginning in October and throughout the end of the basketball season (beginning of April).

**UPDATE for 2021, Pep Band WILL meet during the Spring 2021 semester. Rehearsals will occur in person (socially distance with PPE). If you are interested in joining Pep Band for Spring 2021, register for MUSC229P-0101.
