The Norcross High School Marching Band, which includes winds, percussion, and Color Guard, begins rehearsing in the summer and continues through the football season. Performances include all home and away football games, pep rallies, select local parades, and local competitions and exhibitions. This ensemble is unquestionably the most visible performance group in high school.
The marching band is an extracurricular activity open to any current ninth through twelfth grade band student. Because the activity is a direct product of the skills that are developed in the band curriculum, only students currently enrolled in a band class are eligible to march, with the exception of Color Guard.
Marching band is a demanding activity, both musically and physically. All participants must commit themselves to maintaining high musical performance standards and good physical condition.
