Marching Band Preview Show Invite

We invite all family and community members to attend a preview of the 2017 Cavalier Marching Band show at 3:30PM on Friday, August 4 at Mt. Airy Middle School. It's the first stop on our 'Magical Mystery Tour.' We think you'll be amazed at how much the students have accomplished in just a few short days.

Immediately following the preview show, we'll load the truck to move instruments/equipment back to South Carroll High School. I could use some help unloading equipment at the High School at approximately 5PM.

Beginning the week of August 21st, we will begin our regular fall rehearsal schedule at South Carroll High School. We will rehearse from 6PM – 8PM on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and from 3PM – 4:30PM on home football days.

The first few rehearsals are:

  • August 22 from 6PM – 8PM for everyone

  • August 24 from 6PM – 8PM for everyone

  • August 29 from 6PM – 8PM for everyone

  • August 30 from 6PM – 8PM for everyone

We will have a few weeks where we will need to cancel rehearsals because of other activities at SCH. You can find the entire rehearsal and performance schedule at

Our first performance is at the varsity football game on September 1. Students should arrive by 2:45PM and be ready to warm-up and rehearse at 3PM for the performance. The game starts at 7PM and should be done around 9:30PM.

Finally, I just received a request for the Marching Band to perform in Mt. Airy on Saturday, August 26 from 5 - 6PM. I know that families may have other plans that day, but I would like all available students to participate. I'll be sending more information ASAP.
