Fall Semester 2017

Marching Band Rehearsal Weekly Schedule

The weekly rehearsal schedule changes from week to week based on when Football games occur, holidays, and contests.

The best way to know what the schedule looks like is to use the band calendar on the band website and/or subscribe to the calendar. All marching band events are listed under the "AEB Main" calendar. You can select different calendars using the drop down in the upper right hand corner.

You can view the calendar here.

Scroll through to August of 2017...that is where the information for the Fall of 2017 begins.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to give a static calendar that never changes...but all dates and times are updated in real time.

There are at least 10 regular season games (up to four of which may be on Thursday). The first game is usually the first week of school and we will have at least one bye week. So, you can plan on there being a Thursday or Friday from September 1st through November 4th.
