The U of U Drumline consists of a corps-sized battery and boasts a modern playing and arranging style. Check out our promotional video here.
The U of U Drumline is open to all university students, regardless of major. You do NOT have to be a music major to participate as members represent all disciplines and majors across university campus. Students attending other higher educational institutions (such as Salt Lake Community College) are eligible to participate as a member of the drumline.
Joining the drumline not only offers the opportunity for students to advance their musical skills, but also to develop discipline, experience a high level of excellence, and to achieve a challenging goal as a member of a cohesive team. Percussionists already accepted into the School of Music as music majors or minors are automatically placed in the drumline, although they must audition to determine instrument placement.
