About Marching Band and Color Guard
Launched in fall 2017, the WGHS Marching Band and Color Guard competes in the WBA and NCBA circuits throughout October and November. The MBCG also supports and entertains the Willow Glen community at home football games and in the WGHS Homecoming Parade.
Mandatory band camp is held for a week in late July/early August. Students must attend band camp in order to participate in marching band. Once school starts, MBCG rehearses 1-2 nights per week from 6-9 PM and Saturdays from 9 AM-3 PM through mid-November.
No audition is required for MBCG; however, advance sign-ups are required in order to determine exact numbers for design purposes. Students can sign up using the link to the Google form under Student Information.
The MBCG heading also includes Winter Guard, which runs January through March and is an opportunity to showcase our Color Guard performers. Students can participate in Winter Guard without having been in Color Guard during the fall season. In the 2019 winter season, the WGHS Winter Guard placed in the top three guards in their division at every competition and took home the bronze medal at CCGC Championships.
