STYLE MARCHERS

Style Marchers is the primary performing ensemble in the fall.   This group consists of the wind students (woodwind and brass), color guard, and percussion (front ensemble and battery).  The Style Marchers will attend and perform at all home football games, various away games, pep rallies, parades, and competitions. Rehearsals outside of class will primarily take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  After the competitive marching and football season, the number of Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals will be reduced.

There is a financial obligation each student will be responsible for to be considered an active participant in the Style Marchers.  Specific fees will be known near the end of the school year for the upcoming summer and school year.
 
MEMBERSHIP:  Any student with an interest in band and a willingness to work, and an ability to meet the financial and time requirements necessary will be accepted into the Style Marchers.   The Band available to each student will depend upon audition results.  Color Guard and Percussion positions are determined by audition.
