Marching Band is considered a fall-semester-only course and requires participation in summer band camp. Attendance at all football games, pep rallies, and contests is mandatory. There are several parades throughout the school year and summer, participation is generally required
Students do not have to audition for the marching band and some sections have competition for permanent spots.
The Marching Band at Anderson High School consists of several student groups…
- Wind Players – flutes, clarinets, saxes, trumpets, horns/mellophones, trombones, baritones and tubas
- Percussion – the battery (marching percussion) and front ensemble (marimbas, xylophones, bells, keyboards, timpani, and more!)
- Dance Guard – flags, banners, rifles, and choreography
- Props – students who move props during the show rather than play an instrument
