The University of Illinois Summer Band meets during the summer session, and performs two "Twilight Concerts" on the Illinois Quadrangle. This tradition spans over a hundred years and is a special element of the Illinois Band Program and our link to the community. The summer band's repertoire includes standard works for band, entertaining contemporary works, and popular selections from a wide array of musical styles. Membership in the summer band is open to all students, band alumni, and community members with an instrumental background. No audition is required.
