Arts Discover Day: Marching Band

The Belhaven “Blazer” Marching Band is an exciting and dynamic ensemble comprised of both music and non-music majors. Made up from almost every field of study, it is one of the larger co-ed organizations on the campus. Approximately 85% of the members are not music majors.

Arts Discover Day is an opportunity for students to audition for marching band and also a time to get to know Belhaven through campus tours, meeting professors and students, and getting to know your admission counselor. Part of your schedule for the day will include the audition and time with the band director, but your potential major will also determine the rest of your schedule. So, sign up today! We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
