2020 Bands of America Patch
It’s disappointing to miss the experience of performing at Lucas Oil Stadium at the BOA Indianapolis Super Regional. However, BOA has created a nice patch for 2020. Please consider adding this to your band jacket.
Family Night at the Stadium
Please join us on Thursday, September 24 at 8:00pm for "Family Night at the Stadium". This is a great opportunity for families that are not able to attend the football games to see the show performed. This informal show happens every Thursday night during practices and is open to band families. Please remember to wear a mask and observe physical distancing while sitting in the stands like any event in the stadium. Do not sit on the red tape and stay together as a family.
This week, we have invited the 8th grade band students to attend the practice from the stands. During a normal Homecoming, the 8th graders would spend time with the high school band before the football game, then perform the fight song with the band on the field. Inviting the students to the practice is the best experience we can offer at this time.
Marching Band Awards – Thursday, October 1
Everyone is welcome to join us for a night of celebration of this marching band season at the stadium on Thursday, October 1 at 8:00pm. We will recognize the hard work of our students in spite of uncertain and challenging circumstances. This event is replacing the marching band banquet that would have happened in November but was cancelled.
