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!
