2022-2023 Marching Band Drumline Announced

Thanks to everyone who prepared for the audition. Our drumline is the engine room of our band and a popular group. The following is where we think the group will sound the best after hearing auditions. We still have the auxiliary harness that we would like someone to use (tambourine, splash, cow bells, woodblocks). Please start learning your parts to cadences and pregame music. We will assign which bass drum students are playing soon.
