The OSU wind ensemble onstage at The LaSells Stewart Center.

Established in 1891, Oregon State University's band program is the oldest in the PAC-12. With more than 500 students participating, the OSU Bands are the largest program in the state of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Students from OSU music programs filter into majors across the entire campus and enhance the complete college experience for so many students. Whether you are looking to be a professional performer, a music educator or to just continue to learn and play your instrument, there is an opportunity for you with OSU Bands.
