The Band of the Fighting Irish
The University of Notre Dame Band is the nation's first University band, rendering their musical talents since 1846 when they performed at the first graduation ceremony. It’s always new and dynamic with over 500 student participants in the program.
Their precision and power, en masse or in smaller units give fans and guests the opportunity to experience a performance in a variety of settings and times over the home football weekend. After Game Day weekend concludes, they will have marched more than seven miles.
