Marching Band

 

We play music that is challenging for us and entertaining for our fans. All of the music we play is custom-arranged for the band each year our show, stands tunes, even the fight song!! Each year, the music is edited to fit our particular instrumentation balance so we always sound our best. Our percussion book is arranged by John Gleissner.
