General Information


The Towson University Color Guard is a contemporary, corps-style color guard with voicing that comprises of flag, rifle, and sabre, with dance influence. The World Famous Towson University Marching Band learns just one field show each fall season which allows the entire visual presentation of the ensemble, including the color guard, to explore substantial artistry and content.


Membership in the color guard is open to all Towson University students who have previous experience in their high school’s contemporary color guard. An audition process will occur during the summer practices. If you are unable to attend a summer rehearsal, you must provide an audition tape. All color guard members must be able to provide a certain degree of ability in regards to basic skills in flag and dance. More information will occur in a video that will be provided in late spring. The main qualities needed to be a member of the Towson University Color Guard is an open mind, a strong work ethic, and a desire to be part of an energized organization!


Whether students are in the color guard, brass section, woodwind section, or percussion section, all members of the band enjoy the same privileges and benefits of membership. This includes scholarships and class credit. More information can be found through the Marching Band link of the website in places such as Prospective Members.


After the marching band season, TUMB Color Guard members have the opportunity to participate in the winter guard season.

The TUWG competes in local KIDA shows, WGI Regionals, and WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio every year. For the 2017 season, we will be competing in 1 TIA and 1 AIA competition.
