No Spring Varsity Concert in 2021

Hello supporters of the University of Wisconsin Marching Band. We regret to inform you that the Spring 2021 Varsity Concert will not take place.

Given the continued and necessary restrictions on gathering sizes for rehearsals, classes, and gatherings (indoors and outdoors), we are not able to put on the concert.We sorely missed doing the concert last year, and we were looking forward to performing for you this year.

We are devastated by this situation but realize that this is in the best interest of our students and supporters.We are extremely appreciative of all our seniors from the previous two seasons as well as the members who have remained committed to this organization despite the challenges.

We look forward to returning and will share more details as they become available. Your support means the world to us; we are incredibly grateful for such supportive alumni and fans. The tradition continues…

UW-Madison Marching and Varsity Bands

Anyone who has ever been a member of the Marching and Varsity Bands won’t hesitate to tell you that the four years they participated were some of the most exciting times in their life. There have been trips, concerts, exciting games, and innumerable special events. High points over the years include nine appearances in the Rose Bowl and performances in Tokyo, Tampa, San Antonio, Nashville, Tucson, El Paso, Birmingham, Shreveport, and New York City. Travel includes visits to Big Ten stadiums throughout the Midwest and Lambeau Field to perform during Green Bay Packers games. In Madison, the Marching Band performs weekly in Camp Randall Stadium for more than 80,000 fans during Badger football games. Keeping with tradition, up to 50,000 fans regularly stay after the conclusion of the games to enjoy the famous Fifth Quarter.
