Marching and Pep Bands

Just think of the friendships formed, the skills gained, and the competitive spirit that came with your band experience in high school, and multiply it; that’s what you’ll experience in the concert, pep, and/or marching band at BVU.

Buena Vista University's marching and pep band program allows you to participate in an intercollegiate athletic band experience like no other in the American Rivers Conference. Our lakeside football field and jam-packed fieldhouse provide the game day experiences you’re looking for in college!

“No matter your major, you can continue your musical pursuit at BVU! You’ll be able to share your talents with the student body and with people in our community and beyond. We’d love to have you be part of a new musical era, one I’m so proud to be leading at Buena Vista University!”

Tiffany Wurth, BVU director of bands
