Chargers Marching Band members are a true cross-section of the University, representing a wide range of studies at UNH. Members include those with championship high school and drum corps experience as well as those whose high school bands did not march at all. All rehearsals bring both experienced and non-experienced marchers together in one cohesive learning environment. Advanced members improve their skills and share their talents with incoming members allowing students new to marching to be able to embrace a fun and educational environment, while being a part of a dynamic organization.
The Chargers Marching Band was founded in 2004 by Robert Hughes and Jordan Byron. Acting on their passion for music, the two co-founders set their sights on influencing and helping students realize their quest for fellowship through music at UNH. In Fall 2005, the Marching Band was transformed into a class under the direction of the University's Music Department. The program has taken great strides since its inception and has overcome many obstacles in its pursuit of becoming an ensemble dedicated to tradition, honor, and excellence.
Anyone interested in the Marching Band is invited to join us at one of our regular rehearsals and to submit your information.
