Assassins Pit Band

Wondering where Jaemi is?

Basic Information

Pit Band will be its own distinct ensemble. Participation in pit band is not directly connected to your participation in any other music program ensemble. Any accommodations that need to be made regarding attendance or participation in other ensembles will be at the discretion of the director of that ensemble and will be made on a case by case basis.


You are eligible to receive 1 credit hour for your work in pit band by registering for a practicum credit through the drama department.


Because of the rehearsal schedule, you will need to learn your parts BEFORE rehearsals commence.


Pit band members may also be able to be in the chorus of the show, so if you’re interested in doing double duty, as it were, be sure to indicate that when you sign up. Also, be sure to attend cast auditions and let the director know that you’re planning to be in the pit.


Questions? Email Dr. Loeb.
