The University of Illinois Band Program is among the most prominent, historic, and largest collegiate band programs in the world. It enjoys a reputation for superb musical performance and innovation, while honoring its rich traditions. University of Illinois Bands offer students varied musical experiences through its multiple concert bands, the 375-member Marching Illini, basketball bands, volleyball band, and summer band. Over 650 students participate in these ensembles each semester, and most concerts are held in the beautiful Foellinger Great Hall, located in Krannert Center for the Performing Arts—a state of the art facility that brings world artists to campus year round.


At the forefront of band music education for over a century, the University of Illinois produced the first college band program, setting standards for concert performance and marching band drill design, and producing prominent performers and music educators throughout the world. The concert program, led by the Illinois Wind Symphony, has maintained many years of musical excellence through its multiple recording projects, tours, premieres, and collaborations with world artists.
