Highland HS Band & Color Guard

2017 Fall Show "Nevermore" 

Marching Band

The Marching Band consists of the wind instruments, drumline, front ensemble and colorguard performing as one unit. This unit performs a field show at home football games and field competitions, participates in parades (fall & spring semesters), and also provides an optional pep band at school events and activities.
The main part of the marching season is the field show tournaments. All students enrolled in the marching band program must understand and accept the rigorous practice and performance schedule. Rehearsals start during the summer.

*Please see the calendar for summer rehearsal dates and times.

**If your incoming Freshman is attending summer school during band camp, once they are dismissed, they will be joining band camp already in process. 

Wind Ensemble
Wind Ensemble is an important part of the instrumental music program at Highland High School. This is where each student learns to play more musically and with more maturity. Without a concert experience, a student does not have the opportunity to increase his/her skill and knowledge of his/her instrument. All marching band instrumentalists will be enrolled in the Wind Ensemble in the spring semester.
