Check out the news articles spotlighting our West Chester University Ram Band's Road to the Roses! 

Philadelphia Inquirer - December 12, 2022

Have you HEARD the news?? Made up of about 230 wind instrument players, 50 percussionists, 40 color guard members, five student coordinators, and four drum majors, the purple and gold marching band has a long and storied history at West Chester. Its earliest rendition can be traced to 1889.

WHYY - January 1, 2023

WHYY has picked up the beat! This past fall, our 337-member West Chester University Incomparable Golden Rams Marching Band performed a show about the pressures of time. One act was an arrangement of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” and another sampled Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” In the third act, inspired by Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle,” a member of the band’s color guard put down the flag she’d been spinning, picked up an electric violin, and played a solo.
