Marching Band is a performance-based class, which rehearses (daily) during the band period. Out-of-class rehearsals and performances are required and included in the students final grade. The Marching Band is an ensemble that functions as a competitive group and competes at the district and state level, as well as at all varsity football games, community events and concerts. While all students will perform in some capacity, it should be noted that not all students will be full time performers and performance time will vary. During the second semester, the band splits into separate concert bands, with students placed by audition.
