The year starts off with Marching Band and a two week band camp at the high school in August where we learn our field show for the upcoming fall competition season. During Band camp we also have fun by partaking in the Band Camp Olympics and end of Camp Cookout where we share our field show with our family and friends.  Our Competition Season takes place in October where we travel and compete at different High Schools throughout the surrounding area. Marching Band season ends with the Medford/Malden rival Thanksgiving Day Game where we also host our annual alumni event.  As soon as Marching Band season ends Concert Band begins with a full season of concerts and competitions.  We end the year with a few parades, a field trip and the Band Banquet where we honor our seniors, present awards and announce what’s in store for our upcoming season.

Band rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-8pm throughout the school year as well as on Saturday Mornings in September and October.
