The Band of Knights:
The MGA Band of Knights (BOK) is the official name of MGA's marching outdoor performance ensemble. The group operates in the beautifully renovated MGA Band Rehearsal Facility in the Music Building on the Macon Campus. The Music Building includes our main rehearsal studio, percussion studio, large multi-use classroom, piano lab, locker room, practice rooms, library, conference room, and faculty studios. The MGA University Band and its sub-units all operate out of the Music facility! In the fall BOK rehearsals run from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in both the Rehearsal Facility and the band practice field depending on the schedule. The BOK Outdoor Ensemble supports all five campuses including travelling (by charter buses) to Cochran to provide support for home football games.

BOK Class Registration:
New BOK members register for MUSC 1080, returning members register for MUSC 2080

Band Camp:
The Band of Knights band camp will run the first or second weekend of fall semester after classes begin. All rehearsals will be held in our practice facilities and on our practice field on the Macon campus. Camp will include Guard, Percussion, front ensemble/rhythm section, and Wind sectionals as well as full ensemble movement basics, music rehearsal, and setting drill. Be on time and be ready to roll…we have a lot to do!
