High School Marching Band

The High School Marching Band is open to all high school students and selected 8th grade middle school students. In many ways, High School Marching Band is like a sport. In the fall there is a band camp at the end of August to start the season, with two practices a week and a marching band show nearly every weekend.

Students in the marching band practice long and hard to master about 10 minutes of music and marching that always creates an impressive performance.

South Portland has one of the premier marching band programs in the state of Maine and is proud to have won the Maine Band Directors Association Gold Star Award for 11 straight years!

Uniform Fund

The South Portland Music Boosters will be purchasing new uniforms for the SPHS Marching Band for next season.  The current uniforms, while they look great on the field, are really in very poor condition.  The Marching Band has been using the same uniforms for 31 years!  Yes, 31 years!!  These uniforms have been worn by well over 2,000 students!  New uniforms are expensive so we have set up a YouCaring page to help raise money. Any donation helps.
