Interested in Joining the UC Bearcat Bands?

The Bearcat Marching Band is open to all university students by audition only. You must be accepted to The University of Cincinnati in order to audition. Students enrolled at schools affiliated with UC are also eligible to audition.

You may e-mail the Director of the Bearcat Marching Band, Dr. Terren L. Frenz, at frenztl@ucmail.uc.edu with any questions related to the Bearcat Marching Band auditions. Please be sure to click on and complete the Prospective Member Form, located on the UC Band website.

All auditions (regardless of section) must be confirmed through the UC Band office at (513) 556-2263.

Any prospective member who is unable to travel to Cincinnati for their audition may submit a video recording on VHS tape, DVD, Windows Media Player file, or Quicktime file of your prepared material and scales. Students submitting recorded auditions are required to meet with a director for an interview before being accepted.

IMPORTANT! Once accepted to UC, we ask all incoming freshman to schedule their orientation and testing prior to the week before classes, which is part of our Bearcat Band Preseason Band Camp. Please contact the University for available dates for these sessions. Bearcat Band Preseason Camp generally begins two weeks before fall classes begin. A detailed schedule of Band Camp activities will be posted in June.
