Arundel Marching Band


 

Arundel Marching is a unique ensemble at Arundel HS, because of the large number of school performances and competitions we are in. To perform at such a high level we bring in many instructors for our students, compared to most ensembles which only have one director. By having 2-3 percussion staff, 4-5 wind instrument staff, and 3-4 color guard staff, we are able to provide all students with the individual support at all of our rehearsals. In order to prepare students for a successful and rigorous season we also have a summer training camp. 
 

All Members must complete the two week training camp at Arundel High School! 
Please let me know if you are interested in joining and we can work around any conflicts with camp or rehearsals!

*There has been a communicated need from the community to keep the cost of marching band low for the time being while the community adjusts to redistricting, changes in school schedule, field availability, school enrollment and a significant rise in the cost of participation in the marching arts (over 80% increase in transportation & equipment).

The Arundel Marching Band will be pursuing a reduced schedule this season, with intention of constantly re-evaluating opportunities for student performance as we recruit members, fundraise throughout the season and evaluate the needs of the overall music program.

The Arundel Marching Program is a show marching band. We spend the fall sports season learning a show and competing in a variety of competition all over the mid-Atlantic region. Our students have fun and take pride in their work as each season allows for our students to have tremendous growth as musicians and team members.
