We will work with you whether you’re a seasoned performer or a beginner to become a strong member, mentor, and friend.

To be a Saint you must be willing to stand tall and firm at all times!

  • After completing my undergrad, I realized I missed the marching band; the camaraderie and joy of performing. I’ve found both with the Saints, and I’m excited to be part of the family.

  • I love the family atmosphere. Each year you get a new brother/sister while still keeping in touch with old members. It is something to do in the summer. You get to experience new places with new people. I am mostly just happy to continue my love for playing music, and what’s better than doing with people you love.
