The 2022-2023 academic year marks the Centennial Celebration of the University Bands at UW – Eau Claire.  In 1922, student leader Forrest Mortiboy and twenty fellow students formed the first band at UWEC. Today, the University Band program consists of three concert bands (Wind Symphony, Symphony Band, University Band), four jazz ensembles, numerous chamber ensembles and combos, the Blugold Athletic Band (BAB), the Blugold Marching Band (BMB), and serves over 700 UWEC students across every major on campus.  The ensembles frequently perform on campus, in the community, region, country, and internationally.

While I believe the musical instruction is second-to-none, the personal growth I gained from being a part of the UWEC music community has been even more beneficial to my professional career.
