Tiger Marching Band

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 and pride 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 service stipend starting at $400 for first-year members. Stipend amounts go up each year with larger increases for juniors and seniors and bonuses awarded to student leaders and officers. Non-music major instrumentalists in good academic standing are also automatically eligible for the Charles and Carrie Miller Marching Band Scholarship, which provides approximately $200 in addition to the service stipend. All students, regardless of major, are also encouraged to audition for scholarships available through the Department of Music and Theatre.

The FHSU Colorguard performs with the Tiger Marching Band at all home football games. Stipends for the Colorguard start at $450 with increases each year.
