What are some Gameday traditions I could be involved in?

We have a gameday practice at Carr's Hill Field a few hours before every home football game. While many come to watch the gameday rehearsal, we also invite you to watch any rehearsal throughout the season from the top of the hill overlooking the field (Culbreth Road Garage is the nearest parking garage/lot). We also end every practice with a singing of the Good Old Song and invite you to join the band. This is one of our longest-running and favorite traditions, started in 2004 (the first year of the band) and has continued every since!

How do I get tickets to watch the band at football games?

The UVA Ticket Office releases many purchasing options throughout the season for single games and for mini-packs of multiple games.  Season tickets are currenly available for purchase at a 20% discount for CMB families.  If you are ready to purchase, USE THIS LINK: UVA Band Discount!

When and where is band camp? How does that work with move-in day?

Band camp schedules will be released in mid-June.  Band Camp happens about 10 days prior to the school start date and lasts about 7 days.

How can parents get involved in the band with volunteering?

The easiest thing you can do is to AMPLIFY OUR MESSAGE through your social media platforms.  Coming to a game and supporting your HOO is equally great.  Finally, there are many ways to give of your money or time.  Check out our Giving tab for some additional information!

How can I get more information about what is going on with the CMB?

Email the band directors at to ask about something or to schedule some time to stop by in-person! The band office is located in the Hunter Smith Band Building at 180 Culbreth Road. We look forward to hearing from you!
