The Green Mountain High School (GMHS) bands program has built a strong tradition in excellence. The program represents 110 students performing as dedicated members of the high school's concert and symphonic bands, jazz ensemble, percussion ensemble, competitive winter guard team, and competitive marching band. GMHS band students are consistently selected for All-County and All-State honor bands. GMHS band students also support other high school activities, serving as the pep band for basketball and football games and the pit orchestra for musicals.
The GMHS Winter Guard won the Rocky Mountain Color Guard Association's Regional A Class Championships in 2013 and 2014. The GMHS Winter Guard now competes in the Association's more demanding "A Class."
The GMHS Marching Rams demonstrate excellence both on and off the field and have been consistent top competitors, earning many marching titles at local and regional competitions. They were Colorado State Marching Band Finalists 27 years in a row, the longest consecutive streak in the state!
