Marching Band

The Middle Georgia State Band of Knights Outdoor Performance Ensemble is one of the most exciting, dynamic, and visible organizations at Middle Georgia State University. Comprising students from many different areas of study from Middle Georgia and across the state, the majority of Band of Knights members actually major in subject areas outside of music. Even though our members possess a wealth of musical talent, we particularly desire players who demonstrate a strong sense of dedication and pride in their work. From the Band of Knights Marching Band to our outstanding jazz, percussion, and wind groups, instructional excellence is our top priority. Our goal is to meet both the performance objectives of our ensembles as well as providing a top-rate educational experience to our members. As the Band of Knights continues its tradition of making a difference, one student at a time, we invite you to join us! Expectatio Excellentiae Dedicatione. Go Knights!

The Marching Band rehearses Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM in our practice facilities on the Macon campus. We also rehearse on Saturday mornings of game weeks. Auditions for The Band of Knights begin in February and continue through the beginning of our preseason band camp which begins just prior to the start of fall semester classes. All students selected for membership in The Band of Knights Marching Band (including Colorguard and Drumline), must be registered in MUSC 1080 (2080 for returning members) for the fall semester. There are no fees required for membership and Middle Georgia State University pays for travel and uniform items (except band shoes.) All Band of Knights members order and buy the same black marching shoe. Ordering information is provided by the Band Department.

BOK Band Camp

The Band of Knights band camp will run the first weekend of fall semester after classes begin. All rehearsals will be held in our practice facilities and on our practice field on the Macon campus. Camp will include Guard, Percussion, front ensemble/rhythm section, and Wind sectionals as well as full ensemble movement basics, music rehearsal, and setting drill.
