Marching Band is an ensemble that incorporates the musical as well as the visual aspect of performance. The winds, drum line, pit, and color guard create the atmosphere for the theme or concept of the marching show. The band travels to festivals to compete with other bands and obtain critiques from quality judging.

Marching Band begins with two weeks of band camp in July. When school starts, practices begin immediately after school every day.  Once a week, we practice on the football field. Sectional rehearsals will be once a week after school.

For some tips for band camp, please see the Band Survival Guide.
