Love Music, Love Growth, and Be a Happy Family
MARCHING BAND is voluntary in the Fall semester and supports the THS football team throughout the football season. All students must be enrolled in a band class to participate in Marching Band. The band’s Drum Line section requires an audition in April and provides the percussion student one of the most fun times to be a DRUMMER!
The full THS Marching Band practices after school on Mondays and Thursdays during the early part of football season, with extra practices for the Drum Line each Wednesday. While the schedule during August through October appears demanding, we go to a “relaxed” schedule in November reducing after-school practice to once a week until the end of parade season.
COLOR GUARD is voluntary and incredibly fun because we base our approach on Interpretive Dance routines. Students do not have to be enrolled in any band class to audition for participation. Auditions are held in April every year. This group practices with the full Marching Band after school on Mondays, and Thursdays with an extra separate practice each Wednesday.
BAND CAMP is REQUIRED for everyone participating in Marching Band. Band Camp is the time when participants learn how to be successful in their marching methods, maneuvering, dance routines, and music for the upcoming competition season. Together the Marching Band performs at all home football games, and participates in several Marching Band Competitions each year.
Since 1977 the THS Blue Crew Marching Band has earned “Superior and Excellent Ratings”, "Grand Champion Award" and “Best in Class” awards at numerous Marching Competitions.
