Marching Band at Marina is full of music, marching, and events. “Marching Band” includes all who are involved first semester – musicians AND color guard.
Band Camp is in the summer, usually the two weeks before school begins. During this time, beginning students learn to march, practice music and begin learning the fall field show. Students are also measured for band uniforms and will participate in two performances – before school even begins!
The band plays at most football games, performing a half-time show at home games. The half-time show is also our competitive field show for the season. Away football games are a time to play music and support our football team, but without marching on the field.
The marching band also performs at pep rallies, and marches in parades at Disneyland, the Huntington Beach Holiday of Lights Parade, and the Seal Beach Holiday Parade.
Parent support is vital to the success of the Viking Band. Chaperones help with uniforms, feeding and watering, and being our biggest cheering section. All are welcome!
