Imagine.... If we showed up for rehearsal prepared to work like this. Imagine... if we had the common goal to be the best we could be as individuals. So as a team, we could be unstoppable.
Incredible news... we have just received permission to compete in the AZ Marching Band Association Festivals THIS YEAR! We will most likely be competing in the 2A division for 50-74 members. You do not have to be a large marching band to do impressive things. Just watch the video below!
We are working on the show and the schedule for next year. As these new developments have come to light, there is much more our directors need to do. Please be patient as we work on the budget and calendar for next years season. The MARCHING BAND FEE is $500 per student. We are also working on individual fundraisers to help you pay for your fees. Please take advantage of the fundraising opportunities we have coming your way! We WILL be sending out more information soon!
