The University of Scranton Concert Band is an 80+ member ensemble and the Concert Choir is a 60+ member ensemble, both comprised of members of the university community from majors and departments spanning the curriculum – the vast majority of them undergraduate students, joined by a few graduate students and members of the faculty and staff – none of whom are music majors, who are all brought together by their mutual love of music-making.
