Inaugurated in 1996, the University Band's CD recording project has led to the release of three compact discs: Shadows of Eternity, Timepieces and Airs & Dances, which have met with critical and popular acclaim, and been distributed throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, and Japan.
