A semester course only offered in the fall for students who play a wind instrument. Students will continue to learn and enhance music fundamentals and technique learned during previous instructions. Students will also explore multiple approaches to develop and refine aspects of music performance and general effect as it pertains to the Marching Band show design.
Color Guard Techniques:
This first and second semester course is designed to introduce and develop a student’s knowledge and skill in fundamental and advanced dance and auxiliary equipment techniques and performance. The Color Guard is a vital part of the Marching Band and follows the same schedule as the Douglas County Marching Band (schedule on calendar tab). All Guard members are required to participate during scheduled rehearsals and performances beyond the normal school day.
During the competitive season, the marching band competes through the Colorado Bandmasters Association (CBA) as well as Ascend Performing Arts.
CBA holds Colorado Regionals & State Championships, Ascend Performing Arts hosts the Friendship Cups.
The Huskie Pride Marching Band finished an incredibly successful season in 2021 as they placed 10th at 5A CBA State Semi Finals.
