Summary: 

Music is not just an academic study, it is a way of life for many people. At Georgetown College we would love to give you the opportunity to continue to sing, or play your instrument while in college, to take your understanding and love of music to the next level, and to join a unique and rich community of former musical Tigers in our chorale or bands.

Students can receive academic credit for participating in weekly practices, which are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4:00-5:00. Students can also receive a band scholarship by auditioning at Georgetown Scholars Day on February 16th, 2018. Applications are due by February 1st to be considered for an interview. The primary ensembles perform roughly 30-50 times per year, and there is no additional cost for students beyond personal instruments. The majority of our instruments and equipment will all be provided by our band friends.

"Being a part of Tiger Bands helped me prepare for life after college. The preparation that was needed to put on an amazing show - from playing the pieces to setting up and tearing down - helped me realize how necessary teamwork and drive is to success."
