Marching Band

Marching Band

With football season comes marching band! After the art department was rewarded with the 2021-2022 KSHSAA Performing School of Excellence Award there might be some pressure put on the marching band to be one of the best, but with the performance that they are working on, it should meet the expectations. This year the marching band will be performing “Night Watch” which is music specially made for marching band. With three movements of music that need to be learned, the band gets up early in the morning to practice before school.  Even before the school year started they had a whole week of preparation for the season. If you are interested in watching the marching band perform their music you can come to home varsity football games at McPherson College and watch during halftime.  If you are even more dedicated to watching the marching band, they will have their first competition on October 12th at Baker University Stadium in Baldwin City, KS where you will see more than just McPherson marching band competing but many bands compete against each other for judges.
