Spring on the York College campus

YC Pep Band

YC Pep Band stands as a group with their instruments.

The new YC Pep Band is under the direction of Matthew Inkster, Professor of Music and Director of Instrumental Studies. Students from across the campus and representing many different Schools and majors have enjoyed participating in the band and supporting the Spartans this basketball season. Inkster explained, “I was so happy to receive a Great to Greater Grant to help us jump-start the organization. We needed to purchase music, equipment, shirts, and commission a YCP Fight Song.” The group will now be looking to purchase instruments that would be dedicated to student use in the pep band. He added, “The students have been so pleased to add to the great atmosphere and spirit at the basketball games that we could attend this year and we’re looking forward to helping rock the Grumbacher Center for years to come!”
