All South Carroll High School instrumentalists are strongly encouraged to participate in the SCH Cavalier Marching Band. The Marching Band plays a variety of music for varsity football games, competitions, and school-related events. Marching Band is an excellent opportunity for students to increase their performance skills, socialize with other band students and contribute to school spirit.
Participation will require a commitment of time before or after school. Interested students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this performance opportunity.
2019 - 2020 SHOW: "SECRET AGENT"

We will have a few weeks where we will need to cancel rehearsals because of other activities at SCH. These changes will be announced with ample notice so you can make any arrangements, if necessary, to your own schedules.
The Marching Band will perform at all home football games – typically five or six throughout the fall season. Games are usually held on Friday evenings unless they are rescheduled due to inclement weather. You can find the schedule on the CavMusic calendar via the home page of this website or via the Carroll County Athletic League Website.
We will also perform in several community parades and local marching band competitions. The schedule will be announced and posted on the CavMusic Calendar as soon as the dates are available from the community organizers.
