Big Purple Marching Band
The Big Purple Marching Band is a dynamic and exciting ensemble comprised of both music and non-music majors. The Big Purple is one of the largest co-ed organizations on the ACU campus. The band is a vital part of the ACU Opening Assembly each year, performs at all home football games and, often, away games.
The Big Purple also presents exhibition performances at invitational and UIL marching contests. Scholarships are available for ALL participants and no audition is required for enrollment. Most students are eligible to receive one P.E. credit for their participation.
The camaraderie among Big Purple Band members is legendary on campus, offering great social opportunities and friendships that last a lifetime, as well as the pride of performing in one of ACU's best-loved music traditions. Rehearsals are held Monday through Friday, 11:50 a.m.- 12:45 p.m.
