Marching Band

The High School Marching Band combines the musicality of a concert band, the precision of marching, the beauty of choreography and dance, the fire of percussion and the pageantry of the football season to create a truly unique and special activity. Modern marching band shows are intense, athletic, and skillful. Weekly rehearsals begin in May to familiarize students with the music. Band camp begins in early August, and the marching season runs through November. The band performs at 5 to 6 weekend competitions, all home and away football games, and parades.
