Marching Band/Wind Ensemble

The Marching Band, Color Guard, and Percussion classes make up what we call the Wildcat Entertainment Corps. We are a marching band that performs at school and community events and at marching band competitions during the year. Students learn a fun and challenging marching field show and perform in competition against other schools in the area as well as participating in local parades. The Wildcat Entertainment Corps performs at home and away football games, home basketball games, during school pep-rallies, and at other community events. It's one of the most active groups on campus!
In the Spring/2nd Semester, Percussion and Winds continue to perform as the Wind Ensemble in Festival competitions and in school concerts.
