Enriching the Arts for Students

Welcome to This Week In Marching Band
Midland Park High School Marching Band is comprised of students in grades 7-12. The band rehearses exclusively after school.

Notes from the Directors
Updated 9/26/22

Seems that Copaigue wanted to make sure it was more memorable than Brentwood! The entire show is now on the field and the work to polish and refine gets going. A huge thanks to the crew that made prop adjustments and battled crazy weather to get us on the field!

This week's practices will be focused on making refinements the show. While we will be doing the full show at Ramsey again, it will certainly have some new elements. Please also remember that this week is a different circuit so the scoring system is different and they don't count toward dome. That doesn't mean that we won't see some judges that might be there!

Saturday is a busy day...Practice begins at noon. Truck Loading at 4:15. Band Departure around 5:15 and performance at 6:30.
