The Madison Marching Patriot Band is an enriching opportunity that combines the middle and high school students together in order to create a band meant for Friday night football games, parades, and marching band competitions. It is a voluntary band that is associated with after school activities. Marching Band is also an entry for participation in Color Guard. Each student is required to attend Band Camp, after school rehearsals, fundraisers, and all performances. Dates associated with Marching Band will be provided under the Calendar tab.
To sign up, students and their parent(s)/guardian(s) must fill out the marching band registration form below and submit, with fees, prior to the end of the school year with a given date to be announced. If a submission is given after the date, that student will be subjected to being a "shadow". A "shadow" is a position in which the student is not given their own spot for shows and will stand on the sidelines. "Shadows" are still able to play in the stands and march in parades. Due dates are given based on the time frame needed to create the show (marching drill and music) based on the exact number of students and instrumentation. Color Guard applicants must also complete this form for the creation of the drill.
