Marching Band

Marching band happens from the end of July to the end of October. Everyone is involved during all of our Friday Night Varsity football game performances, including creating our traditional LHS spell-out at the end of halftime! Being a part of Friday Night Lights while we support our Fighting Farmer Football team is a lot of fun!

All students also have the opportunity to earn competitive marching drill spots in the fall show for marching band contests that happen in October. Most recently the LHS Band earned straight 1's at the 2020 UIL Regional Contest and tied for 6th at our Area Marching Contest.

FAQ's

Can students do athletics and band?

Absolutely! We currently have students who are in both band and football, volleyball, wrestling, ROTC, cheer, baseball, basketball and more. We work really well with the coaches and counselors to make class schedules and rehearsal/practice schedules work for each student.

What should students expect for the band audition?

LHS Band Directors will travel to your middle school to listen to you perform during your band class. The performance will include scales and a prepared piece of your choice (a solo, an etude, band music, etc). We want to hear you playing at your very best - this should not be a stressful process!

What if students are hesitant to do marching band?

Nearly all freshman are a bit anxious about the unknowns of high school including how to participate in marching band. We provide a few marching rehearsals designed for the freshman in May so that they can get acclimated and get a feel for what it is all about. Most students come into high school unsure about marching band, but after their first year it becomes one of the most favorite aspects of the band program!

Can students participate in 4 years of band and still graduate?

Yes! We have 70 seniors this year that are completing 4 years of band while graduating with endorsements and honors. Most of our band students are on the upper academic tracks and are often the top of their class. Historically, 50% of the Senior class Top Ten are band students!

When should I expect to receive more information about end-of-summer and fall dates?

LHS Band Directors will send out a full list of summer and fall dates by May. Your middle school directors will also keep you updated on pertinent information!
