At Northwestern Oklahoma State University, the Instrumental Music program is as active as that found at any major university, but filled with the friendliness and warmth of a small college. No matter what time of year it happens to be, instrumentalists participate in many performance opportunities including concerts by the Symphony Band, Jazz Band, and home football and basketball games by the Ranger Marching and Pep Bands. Northwestern bands tour regionally and nationally. Previous tours by the Northwestern Bands have included Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, and Washington D.C.
The Northwestern Instrumental ensembles are open to all students regardless of major. Participation scholarships are available to every instrumental student, again, regardless of major! Whether you plan to major in music or if you simply want to continue playing your band instrument during your university years, you’ll find participating in the program of Instrumental Studies at Northwestern Oklahoma State University to be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of your college education.
