The Harrison Marching Band, which includes the 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, local competitions and exhibitions, and several BOA competitions. 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.
Since the marching band enters into competitive events, all students must meet the Georgia High School Association and Cobb County academic and residency eligibility requirements. The details of these requirements are outlined in the Harrison High School Student Handbook issued to all students by their advisement teacher.
The marching activity is a demanding activity, both musically and physically. All participants must commit themselves to maintaining high musical performance standards and good physical condition.
Harrison Marching Band is one of the top competitive marching bands in the nation!
