Marching Band (9-12th Grade)
Marching Band occurs as part of the instrumental music courses and includes all instrumental music students in 9-12th Grade as well as any color guard members not in instrumental music. Rehearsals occur before school (7:00-8:00am) on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and on Tuesday evenings (7:00-9:00pm).
