Alumni Band Day
Golden Wave Alumni Band Day

Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022

The Annual Alumni Band Day allows alumni the opportunity to play and march during halftime with the current Baylor University Golden Wave Band. Marching at halftime has been a treasured part of our alumni experience since our founding in 1986. Join us on Nov. 12 as we celebrate our 36th anniversary as the Baylor University Golden Wave Alumni Band.

Festivities begin Friday evening with a welcome dinner at La Fiesta, where you will receive materials for Alumni Band Day. Saturday will include rehearsal with the Baylor Golden Wave Band at the Allison Practice Facility, a meal, and the joint half-time performance of the Alumni Band with the Baylor Golden Wave Band at McLane Stadium as we cheer on the Bears against Kansas State.
