FALL 2021 INFORMATION: To get involved with the Fall 2021 "Mighty Sound of Maryland," there are two simple steps!
1) Complete the 2021 Commitment Form
2) Register for the Fall 2021 course: MUSC 229F (1 credit hour) AND either MUSC 229G (winds), MUSC229I (guard, twirlers, drumline) or MUSC229K (dance team)
The deadline to complete these TWO steps is July 31, 2021. After that date, we can still accept members, but this will be on a case by case basis, and we may not be able to provide on-campus Early Week housing.
IF, you are interested, but not quite ready to commit, be sure to visit our Virtual Open House (available 24/7), our FAQ page, or attend one of our Virtual Q & A Sessions that we'll be hosting throughout the summer - follow our social media accounts @MightySoundofMD for upcoming dates!

GENERAL AUDITION INFO: All interested wind, drumline, and guard performers are accepted into MSOM. Auditions occur at the beginning of Early Week for drumline members to determine sub-section placement.
