University of Montana Alumni Band

Alumni Band at 2017 Homecoming


This is your Invitation - be sure and mark your calendar now and “SAVE the DATES” to join your Alumni Band’s huge 30th Anniversary events for UM Homecoming!   Special moments this year will include the invitation to all the living ‘UM BAND DIRECTORS thru the decades,'  and they are returning to Missoula and join us! These directors will be our guests at the Banquet,  and they will direct us for some of the Concert Music sight-reading session on Friday morning. Dr. David Whitwell and his wife have already responded that they are coming and are excited to be sharing time with you!


The Homecoming theme for 2018 is ‘MONTANA STRONG.' And with your  UM Alumni Band - MARCHING STRONG FOR 30 YEARS!

DATES: Friday & Saturday, October 5th and 6th 2018

Your planning committee is working to prepare for the best Homecoming ever! DO IT RIGHT, AND BE HERE FOR ALL OF FRIDAY AND SATURDAY ACTIVITIES that the Alumni Band now enjoys. Also, for everyone who registers and attends, you will be given our own beautiful new ‘personalized for our Band’  souvenir, a ‘UM Alumni Band’ pin for your lapel or cap.  Yes, we want each of you here, and please bring a friend.

Plan to enjoy marching with us - we’re hoping for a record 125 member Band coming down old Higgins Avenue! Then enjoy a great Tailgate Party-Family BBQ following the parade, and play with the UM GRIZ BAND at the half-time of the Football game!
