Travel

As members of the Band, we have the opportunity to travel to many places. Every year, we appoint several Band members (“Tour Directors“) to organize a tour that takes place during Villanova University’s mid-October break. We are also afforded the privilege to travel with the Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams to their postseason tournaments.

Many of our travel opportunities come through the Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams here at Villanova.  A subset of the band is lucky enough to have the opportunity to accompany each team through their travels to the BIG EAST and NCAA Tournaments.  To get the chance to support our teams and show your school pride and spirit, all while playing music with your friends, is truly a unique and unforgettable experience!

The Band also participates in a student-run “Fall Tour” that takes us to a new destination each year.  We perform at a variety of locations, some of which include elementary schools, veteran’s associations, nursing homes, and alumni associations.  This week is a ton of fun, and it is very rewarding!  Fall Tour is definitely one of the Band’s most cherished traditions.
