The Northwestern Band, aka “The Purple Regiment,” is more than just a band – it’s a way of life for many band members and their families. Students thinking about joining the band have many questions and their parents have many more!

  • Will band fit into an aggressive academic schedule?
  • Can I play sports and be in band?
  • Do I have to audition for the high school band?
  • Is it difficult to march?
  • How much time does band REALLY take?
  • How much does it cost? (Parents…this IS doable!)
