Founded in 1996 as a small community concert band, the Kennesaw State University Band
Program has grown rapidly, expanding to five major ensembles supporting over 450 participating
students. The KSU Bands include auditioned concert ensembles, like the Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony, non-auditioned concert ensembles, like the University Band, and auditioned athletic bands, like “The Marching Owls” and the KSU Basketball Band.
All ensembles are comprised of the finest music majors in the School of Music as well
as students representing every college and degree program on the Kennesaw and Marietta
campuses. Through the growth of musical excellence fostered by conductors and countless
musicians, the KSU Bands continue to grow into one of the largest collegiate programs
in the state of Georgia.
