BAND PERFORMING GROUPS:
The Carroll Dragon Marching Band is the largest performing group as it combines all band members from the Carroll Senior High and Carroll High School campuses. The band performs at all Varsity football games, various contests and occasional guest appearances.
Once a student has been accepted into the Marching Band, he/she must pass a series of playing and marching tests to be part of the competitive corp.
The Marching Band will include a shadow squad who may not perform in all performances. The shadow squad is an important element of the Marching Band, serving to build confidence and develop skills.
Summer band rehearsals usually begin the last week of July and continue until school starts. Throughout football season, rehearsals will be held Mon-Tue-Thu after school until 6:15 as well as during the student’s designated Band period.
