Pep Band Auditions

The 2018-2019 TWU Pioneer Pep Band will be a select group of students that perform for TWU Volleyball, Basketball and other athletic events. Members will receive two lump-sum payments ($300 late fall semester, $300 late spring semester) for their services to TWU Athletics. Therefore, if you are selected as a member of the Pioneer Pep Band, you must commit to attending all required events listed on the Pep Band Calendar during the Fall and Spring Semesters.  Frequent absences from Pep Band events may lead to a reduction in pay or replacement in the ensemble.
