Intercollegiate Marching Band - Fundraising Campaign
The 2020 collegiate marching band season has been unprecedented. Many band programs have been sidelined due to Covid-19 restrictions across the country while an even larger number haven’t been able to meet in person at all. College football games have not been the same and bowl season, where college bands are a featured element, will also see empty fields during halftime.
The #bandfamily has never been more important.
Seeing so many bands without the opportunity to perform, a team of college band directors, corporate partners, arrangers, and choreographers have come together to pull off the impossible…
The largest collegiate marching band ever assembled, the CBDNA Intercollegiate Marching Band.
With nearly 1500 performers from over 200 college bands, the IMB is getting ready to release their virtual performance during halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship game on January 11th.
While our team of volunteers has been hard at work to pull this off and the students are learning and performing their parts, we started to hear that even more students, alumni, parents, and fans wanted to help and be part of this historical moment. That time has come!
Join us and become part of our #IMBfamily. Sponsor a member, sponsor your band, sponsor your favorite section, or take the baton and sponsor a director.
Make a donation today and help us conclude this unprecedented season with the biggest collegiate band halftime performance ever created.

The College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA) is comprised of over 300 professional music educators that work across the collegiate landscape to promote the performing arts. This year's inaugural edition of the IMB has been a result of the close collaboration of educators, arrangers, and industry partners, and sponsors. CBDNA offers professional development opportunities as well as scholarships to level the performing stage for under-represented minorities, genders, races, and other segments.
The CBDNA Intercollegiate Marching Band is presented by GPG Music and Our Virtual Ensemble.
