The Baylor University Golden Wave Marching Band

Bears Spellout Revised 09

Comprised of approximately 275 members, The Golden Wave is the largest student musical organization at Baylor University and stands as an icon of campus tradition. Our membership includes students from across the nation and represent all academic disciplines of Baylor, including Music, Science, Business, Pre-Med, and Engineering. The remarkable spirit of the Golden Wave Band comes from the enthusiasm of hundreds of such students who combine their collaborative talents and backgrounds to create a high quality musical experience.

The Golden Wave performs both on and off the Baylor campus and travels to other university campuses during the football season. The band also makes frequent featured appearances at various regional and state-level marching contests including the Texas UIL State Marching Contest. The band performs innovative music and drill that represents both traditional and contemporary marching styles.

For over 100 years the Baylor University Golden Wave Band has stirred the hearts of Baylor fans with its powerful music and creative marching drills. The band is as much a part of Baylor tradition as the Green and Gold. Both on the field and in the stands, the members of the band create an atmosphere of excitement through outstanding musical performance and an unabashed spirit for Baylor football.

To all you prospective members out there, as a member of the band you will participate in one of the most exciting and diverse organizations at Baylor, taking advantage of musical and social opportunities unparalleled in any other college activity. If you would enjoy performing great music in a non-competitive atmosphere where you can create life-long friendships and perform for thousands of people then the Golden Wave Band is for you. We hope you will consider adding your musical talents to one of the most exciting college marching bands in the nation!
