Chargers Marching Band 2017

Update 9/28: 

Thank you to all who have donated and supported the band this Fall. We have come so far already and have two more months left of the season!

Since our show is called "Bridge", featuring the music of Simon and Garfunkel, we decided to build a bridge for the field! Thanks to several band parents, the Marching Band now has an 8 foot bridge that can easily hold over four adults on the top!

We are now in need of a way to transport the bridge to performances. This is super important for our exhibitions and football games!

There's not much time left to so please tmake you donation today, then share our project on social media, and ask your friends & family to support UNHMB!

The University of New Haven Chargers Marching Band, established in 2009, is known as one of the fastest growing collegiate marching band in the nation. The band started with only 20 members, but over the last seven years, we have exploded to over 260 members.

This year, we are traveling across Connecticut and even to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania for two Collegiate Band Festivals. The Masschusetts event is the New England Collegiate Marching Band Festival and the second is the Allentown Collegiate Marching Ban Fest in Pennsylvania. Due to our outstanding reputation, we are always asked to come perform! When traveling, our members plus equipment take up 5-6 buses! 

The funds raised through this campaign will go towards things like plumes, new guard uniforms and travel. Your donation will allow us to perform at many high schools, promote the University of New Haven and gain invaluable performing experience. Your contribution will aid the University of New Haven Chargers Marching Band as we start the next chapter of both our academic and band story.

If you would like receive one of the perks listed on the right, please make sure that you select it when adding your donation amount.
