Welcome to the WPI Pep Band website!

The band welcomes everyone – Don’t be discouraged if you’ve never played, marched, or spun before; we can help you learn! See the New Member FAQ for more information about time commitments and other useful information.


Credit:

The Pep Band also offers physical education credit for those participating in football and/or basketball season. Participation in Pep Band for four seasons will therefore fulfill your university physical education requirement. Despite being available for academic credit, rehearsals and performances are still very casual and loads of fun.


Halftime Show 2018:

Our halftime show for fall of 2018 will be Songs From The Guardians of The Galaxy

To help prepare the halftime show, we will be holding a band camp from August 14th - 17th, which is immediately before New Student Orientation. Drumline members should arrive a day early, August 13th, for part auditions. If you will be joining us as a marching member, you will be required to attend. We will need you to let us know whether you are interested in marching with us by Saturday, July 1st, in order to prepare for your arrival and band camp.

Currently, we are looking for new members for football season! Please feel free to contact the officer board at pepoff@wpi.edu if you have any questions or you are interested in joining us for football or basketball season.
