MARCHING BAND AT NWJH


        8th Grade band members at NWJH march once a year at halftime of a West High School Trojan football game.  For the first 2-3 weeks of the school year, they learn marching fundamentals, practice outside, and prepare a dynamic piece that is always a crowd favorite.  They then join the West High Marching Band and the North Central Marching Band for an unforgettable performance that includes over 400 musicians on the field!!

        They will also perform at the Sounds of the Stadium concert where they reprise this outstanding performance, but this time inside the West High School Auditorium.
