Let’s claim another VICTORY FOR MSU! The Spartan Marching Band provides the soundtrack to Football Saturdays on campus from the first notes of Victory for MSU to the last notes of Shadows, but we need your help to continue our unparalleled excellence.

As a Band Fan, you’ll be supporting all the activities of the band, from instrument costs and uniforms, to travel expenses and instruction. It is only because of the support of friends like you that we can maintain our high level of musical and visual excellence.

"Participating in the Spartan Marching Band has become my fondest memory of my undergraduate experience. Not only did the experience affect me socially (making lifelong friends, and getting me out of my comfort zone), I developed more self esteem and confidence. Watching the Spartan Marching Band continues to be the highlight each football season. For these reasons, I continue to support the Spartan Marching Band to help future students have a similar experience with lifelong memories and friendships. Go Green!!"
