About the ND Band

The Notre Dame Band is an integral part of campus life. Each year over 500 student musicians participate in the three concert bands, three jazz bands, section ensembles, varsity bands, and most notably the Band of the Fighting Irish, the University’s marching band.

Over the course of a school year the band will perform numerous concerts, provide music for liturgies and masses, perform at Men’s Basketball, Women’s Basketball, and Ice Hockey games, and plays the greatest of all fight songs, the Notre Dame Victory March, as the Irish football team competes each fall.
