About Us

The Shippensburg University "Red Raider" Marching Band is the centerpiece of school spirit and pride. With over 160 non-music majors, it is the largest organization on campus, performing almost every weekend for students, family and friends. The band cheers on the Red Raider football team and performs for thousands of fans. Every year the band performs at multiple exhibitions as well as the Collegiate Marching Band Festival in Allentown.
