The home of JCSU’s marching band, the International Institution of Sound, is located behind Biddle Hall, in a structure built in 1922 that once served as the school’s first cafeteria. In 1992, it broke the Guinness Book world record, marching 45 miles around Charlotte to raise money for a trip to Spain that it never made.JCSU has a rich musical heritage that includes the Biddleville Quintet, a touring gospel group that recorded in the 1920s, and the university band started by music professor Dr. Thomas Long in the early 1900’s. The Band room has provided practice and performance space for the marching band, the University Choir, jazz ensembles, and many more expressions of the art form of music over the years.
