ENSEMBLES

Marching Band

The Silver Sound Marching Band season begins with band camp in July. After band camp, rehearsals are Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. There are occasional rehearsals on Friday evenings and Saturdays.

The Silver Sound performs the half time program at all home football games and select away games. Our first marching band competition of the season is the Seminole Sound Spectacular at Seminole High School in late September. The Silver Sound typically competes at the Tarpon Springs Outdoor Music Festival in mid-October and MPAs in early November.

 

The Silver Sound Marching Band handbook was created by the student leadership and staff to help ensure everyone understands the expectations for all members of the Silver Sound Marching Band. Members and parents are expected to review this handbook. The last page is to be printed, signed, and returned to Mr. Black the start of band camp.
