Purdue Bands & Orchestras Advisory Board

The Purdue Bands & Orchestras Advisory Board supports the department with an open exchange of ideas and project support. The board meets two times each year to discuss the short-term and long-term student needs within the department, as well as various strategies for meeting these needs. Members of the board include alumni from every major area of the department (marching band, concert band, orchestra, jazz band), and other proud supporters of Purdue Bands & Orchestras.
