Holy Cross Bands

Welcome to the homepage of the Holy Cross Bands including the Goodtime Marching Band, Crusader Pep Band, and Symphonic Band.

Formed in 1845, we are one of the oldest organizations on campus today. We first began performing at football games in 1910, and since then our role has expanded significantly. We are a cross-section of students who have immense school spirit and a strong camaraderie. We also accept members from schools in the Worcester Consortium (in fact we currently have members from Assumption College, and Worcester State College). We currently have members from all classes and musical backgrounds. We represent eighteen different majors and five academic concentrations.
