"Pride of Arizona" Marching Band
Jay C. Rees, director
The "Pride of Arizona" is The University of Arizona's marching and pep bands. Through the hard work and dedication of both staff and students alike, it has built a reputation as one of the finest athletic band organizations of its kind in the country. Our approach is always on the cutting edge, creating socially relevant artistic statements while performing challenging musical arrangements and contemporary, drum-corps style drill design.
With over 250 members, the "Pride" includes a battery-unit drumline and award-winning auxiliary units of baton twirlers, pom pon dancers and color guard. Filled with a sense of tradition and enthusiasm, the "Pride of Arizona" provides UA students with a place to make music, new friends, support the Wildcat spirit, and individually grow.
