Tiger Marching Band

Online Membership Form

Band Camp Info

It's just not a football game at FHSU without the roaring thunder and spirit of the Tiger Marching Band! Made up of approximately 150 students from all academic disciplines, the band has a long tradition of excellence in service to the university. The Tiger Marching Band is one of the largest and most popular student groups on campus. Fans love our traditional pre-game show, our innovative halftime shows, and our spirit in the stands as we cheer the Tiger Football team onto victory!

All academically qualifying Marching Band members earn a stipend starting at $400 for first-year members. Stipends for the FHSU Colorguard start at $450. Stipend amounts go up each year with bonuses for student leaders and officers.

Non-music major instrumentalists are also eligible for an additional $200 called the Miller Award. All students, regardless of major, are also encouraged to audition for scholarships available through the Department of Music and Theatre.

Interested in joining the Fort Hays State University Marching Band? Contact Dr. Peter Lillpopp or fill out the Online Membership Form.
