Athletic Bands

The Athletic Bands are among the most visible musical ensembles at Otterbein University.  All Otterbein students who perform on a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument, as well as visual performers including color guard and twirlers are welcome to join the Otterbein Athletic Bands.

The Otterbein University Cardinal Marching Band is one of the largest and most active student groups on campus. The Cardinal Band performs at all home games and homecoming events, maintains a presence in various campus activities, and travels to pre-designated away games and high school festivals each season. Performing for over 30,000 people each year and with over 100 years of history, the Cardinal Marching Band is one of the Midwest's premier small college marching bands
