About

In many ways, the Cavalier Marching Band is the spirit of the University of Virginia. Students of all backgrounds, united by our love of music, make lifelong friends and find individual and group success, all while playing UVA’s greatest hits. We need your help to take that CMB spirit to new heights! Thanks to a generous challenge from the UVA Parents Fund Committee, they will match the first $20,000 dollar-for-dollar, doubling your impact!

Thank you for giving to your favorite marching band—us!
