Big Red Express Auditions

The Big Red Express is a group of 120 musicians that perform at the Men’s and Women’s Basketball games and the Women’s Volleyball matches. The band also performs for selected special University events. Members of the Big Red Express band must meet and maintain full-time enrollment status at UNL and maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA. Active members (not subs) in good standing are considered for a small scholarship for each semester of participation.

Students who are candidates for the Cornhusker Marching Band have the option of counting their first round marching band audition as their Big Red Express audition.
