Explore UNH Day: Marching Band

Explore the Marching Band at UNH!

The University of New Haven Chargers Marching Band began in 2009 when football returned to the University. The band consisted of 20 members that first year, borrowing uniforms and equipment from local high schools. The group quickly began to build upon that foundation and rose to 55 members in year two. Five years later it consists of 270 members, making the UNHMB the fastest-growing collegiate marching band in the country!

A Dynamic Organization

This ensemble is a melting pot of both talent and academic backgrounds. Abilities range from students who have won national and world championships to newcomers who are playing an instrument for the first time! Almost every major on campus is represented in the marching band including students from nearby and as far away as California, Texas and Florida!

Charger Pride

The marching band performs at all home football games and travels to playoff games with the football team. The band also performs in three to four area marching band shows, including the New England Collegiate Marching Band Festival in Massachusetts. Full of pride for the University, the UNHMB is a place for everyone and will truly become a home away from home.
