The Spirit of the Old Gold and Black

We’re getting the band back together! On Monday, June 13th, we will have a full band meeting/information session, and all are welcome regardless of registration status.

Wake Forest students, shared experience students, or prospective students are all invited. If you’re not registered for the 2022-23 season, submit your email through the link in our IG bio to get the Zoom link. Registered members will have the link sent to their email on file.

We’ll be meeting the staff and leadership team, discussing travel information, discussing what (and how) to practice over the summer, and going over expectations for our August training camp.

Our registration link is live! Fill out your information in the registration portal. You can click the link in the Instagram bio or scan the QR code (it is recommended you fill it out on your computer).

We do not have auditions, but we recommend you get in contact with your section leaders early on so you can be prepared for the season. Our Drumline has auditions for part designation, but this is not needed to register.

Our shared experience program allows students at Salem College or community colleges nearby to play as a full member of our band, and gives opportunities for fantastic local musicians to support Wake Forest Athletics. If you have questions, DM this account or email our director, Dr. Tim Heath.
