The Harvard University Band (HUB) is the official student band of Harvard University. The Harvard Wind Ensemble, the Harvard Summer Pops Band, and the Harvard Jazz Bands also fall under the umbrella organization of HUB. Currently, the band plays for all football games (both home and away) as well as home men's and women's ice hockey games. Occasionally it plays at men's and women's basketball games.
The Band serves as the official university spirit unit, welcoming special guests and celebrities to Cambridge as well as encouraging alumni to raise song to Harvard at virtually all university and alumni occasions. Other components of the Band include two active Jazz Bands, a Wind Ensemble (specializing in the performance of twentieth-century concert music), herald trumpets, and ceremonial ensembles as required for university events. Between the Halves" album session in Symphony hall includes medleys by John Finnegan and Wright Briggs. The big Bass Drum expires and is replaces by a new, improved, and BIGGER version.

Not since the fall of 1942 has a Harvard band sprawled its comely H's across a while striped green gridiron come half-time at Soldiers Field on a crisp Saturday afternoon. But this year, things are different, and the Harvard University Band, the only band in the country controlled exclusively by its members, will once again cavort before weekend throngs at all nine (count 'em, nine) football games this year
Harvard University is blessed with a rich and varied collection of organs. The magnificent 1958 Flentrop (housed in Busch Hall) is perhaps its most famous example. Championed by the playing of E. Power Biggs, it remains one of the great examples of classic organ building principles, and is still revered by organists the world over. In addition, the university houses a 1911 Skinner in Andover Hall, as well as a Hutchings in Divinity Hall. Several of the undergraduate houses have instruments, as well as a number of churches in Cambridge that house organs on loan from the university. The Freshman Music Rooms are open only to first-year students [more on the practice rooms for freshmen HERE. There are a total of 220 pianos on campus.
The Harvard University Band's new headquarters was named the "Anderson Band Center" on October 26, 1995 in honor of Leroy Anderson, Director in 1929 and from 1931-1935. The band owns a large wooden chair (the Throne) which is ornately decorated with the Harvard logo and HUB motto. It was a gift of the University and the Class of 1903, which the band received in 1953. Currently it is the seat of the Drill Master during drill meetings at which the show for the next week is planned. The Band "Prop Crew" is part of the Harvard Band and is an integral part of the band's spirit and performance
The Harvard University Band is "the best in the business"! (The New Yorker. When did the Harvard band receive such flattery from such a fine publication (The New Yorker)? It was around the same time that the allied forces declared victory: The match between Harvard and Princeton was a satisfactory spectacle just the same, for Harvard's plays were working beautifully and Princeton, lacking that line bucker, tried out a lot of spectacular and often successful passes and laterals, and Harvard never got enough in front to make things look easy.
