Allatoona Marching Band Accomplishments
Symphonic Winds, Symphonic Band and Concert Band
These classes consist of Allatoona High School woodwind, brass and percussion players. Placement is based upon auditions held in the late spring. All three groups perform concerts throughout the year as well as at select GMEA sponsored festivals.
This group performs percussion ensemble music at various concerts and regional events. All percussion students are encouraged to participate.
The color guard unit is a visual support to the marching band. Students who participate in the color guard learn to spin a flag, rifle, and saber, as well to use dance and movement to enhance the band’s performance. The color guard is the only section in the marching band to use non-band students. They may have extra practices in addition to the marching band schedule because the activity is very detailed.
A Winter Guard program is also offered.
Open to all middle school students – no experience necessary!
A select group of brass, saxophones and percussionists come together to make our Jazz Band. They meet in the spring and will perform at various local concerts and regional events.
