Eastern Illinois University Bands

Welcome to the Eastern Illinois University Bands!  The Eastern Illinois University Bands is proud to be serving the University and its students since 1927 through a variety of ensemble experiences.  These ensembles include three concert bands including the Eastern Illinois Wind Symphony, Concert Band, Eastern Symphonic Band, two basketball bands, and one of Illinois' hottest and famous marching bands, the Panther Marching Band.  Over 250 students participate each semester in these outstanding ensembles.

The Eastern Illinois Wind Symphony along with all of the concert bands perform regularly on the stage of Dvorak Concert Hall in the newly renovated 65 million dollar Doudna Fine Arts Center. 

We invite you to visit us in person to truly experience the Eastern Illinois Bands!
