New members: all of the music listed (except for the Warm-Ups) will need to be memorized and passed off in order to earn your white cord and gain free entry into men’s basketball games by the deadline listed on the season schedule.

Returning members will need to memorize and pass off the new version of The Star-Spangled Banner to earn their cord (assuming you have already earned your white cord).

If you are unsure of which part to work on over the summer, just pick the part that best suits your abilities. We will hold auditions for all instruments for part assignments on the first day of band camp (except for tenor saxophones and sousaphones).

You may print these parts to work on over the summer, but we will use electronic copies during the season (readable on your smartphone).

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Smith maosmith@ku.edu. Rock Chalk!
