Marching Band and Color Guard

After a restful break, our band and guard are back in full action! With a new semester and a new year, we are turning over a new leaf across all our groups, revisiting fundamentals to build up students’ technical abilities and skills. Meanwhile, our Color guard has been hard at work preparing for their winter season, even taking time during their break to start rehearsing their show! Great things await, and we are eager to work for them.

Concert Band

As we begin a new semester, we are going to be diligently working on increasing our musical expertise by reviewing scales and going back to the basics of music. Music theory will be a main focus this semester. We will continue to review and sight read new and exciting pieces in the next couple weeks in order to prepare for our future concerts. We are excited to see how far our potential can go!
