For over a century the Cougar Marching Band, an essential part of the tradition and atmosphere of BYU athletics, has captivated audiences with the excitement and pageantry of spectacular pre-game and halftime performances they bring to LaVell Edwards Stadium and through national TV performances. Consisting of 225 dedicated musicians from all over the United States and the world, the Cougar Band takes its nickname from the Wasatch mountain range, a stretch of the Rocky Mountains passing through Provo and providing the beautiful backdrop for BYU’s campus.
This annual performance allows you to experience the loudest concert on campus in relative intimacy of the de Jong Concert Hall.
