Tuesday 6/11/2019 (previously announced as Monday 6/10/2019) & Wednesday 6/12/2019 from 4-6PM in the band room. Attend one or both days!

The Marching Ensemble is much more that just a Parade Marching Band! This is an experience you will never forget. Last season we had a few seniors who joined the Ensemble for the first time and have said they regretted not joining sooner!

We need Dancers for the Color Guard. No experience needed, just a passion for dance!
We need Precision Musician Marchers: brass, woodwind, percussion
We need to fill the stationary Front Ensemble (Pit): percussion, keyboard, guitar, etc… (ability to groove in place a big plus!)

For those interested in Marching (brass, woodwind, percussion), Color Guard & Pit (Percussion, keyboard, guitar, etc…), this will give you a chance to see if competitive marching & color guard (flag & dance) is for you.

See past performances here. PLUS a short tribute video to last season. (Thank you Kara!)

Competitive Marching Ensemble (Marching Band):
Competitive marching bands are marching bands geared primarily towards crowd entertainment and perform on football fields. They typically perform one show per season that is repeated and continually refined over a 3 month period. These shows normally consists of three to five musical pieces accompanied by intricate, choreographed formations. The ensemble includes brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments with support from a stationary front ensemble (percussion, keyboard, and guitar) and a color guard that incorporates the spinning of flags, rifles and sabers with dance.
