Band of Knights

The Band of Knights is in Macon! The MGA Band of Knights (BOK) is the official name of MGA's marching outdoor performance ensemble. The group is now in its second year in the beautifully renovated MGA Band Rehearsal Facility in the Music Building on the Macon Campus. Our new facility includes our main rehearsal hall, percussion studio, large multi-use classroom, piano lab, locker room, practice rooms, library, faculty studios, and student lounge. The Band of Knights Outdoor Ensemble (marching band), Color Guard, Drumline, Percussion Ensemble, University Band, and Jazz Knights jazz ensemble all operate out of the new facility! BOK rehearsals run from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. 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.
