The Marching Tar Heels

UNC_FormationThe UNC Marching Tar Heels, directed by Jeffrey Fuchs and Arris Golden, are one of the largest and most spirited student groups on campus. In addition to performing at all home football games, the full band travels to one away game per year. Students have the opportunity to travel to all other away football games as members of pep bands. The band is composed of approximately 275 students and membership is open to all University students, regardless of major. All members of the Marching Tar Heels are required to participate in one of the four (4) Olympic Sport Pep Bands during
the fall semester and are eligible to participate in one of the basketball bands during the spring semester. The Marching Tar Heels rehearse from 6 pm to 8 pm on Tuesday and Thursday and from 4pm to 6pm on Fridays during the fall semester.
