The mission of the Trojan Marching Band is to provide the University of Southern California with the finest marching band program in the country, while contributing to and supporting the University.  The program provides its members with the opportunity to perform music and to develop their individual artistic expression through the vehicle of the ensemble at athletic contests – home and away – and various University functions, concerts and ceremonies throughout the school year.  It is also the function and mission of the “The Spirit of Troy” to be the main vehicle for, and conservators of, school spirit.  The band reports to the Assistant Provost of Student Affairs. 


The members of our Office Staff serve to enhance, direct, and shape the experiences that students have with The Spirit of Troy, while maintaining the great legacy of the program.
