Papa’s World – Surprised – watching a marching band

It started out watching my grand daughter in her first cheer leading !

But – as I watched – I could not help but notice

The Marching Band – Drill Team and Color Guard –

It was very large considering it was a High School band.

I looked at my hand out of the team details

and found that the Marching Band had 243 members !

Now that I thought was what you would most likely see

at a College football game – not High School

Plus – all the equipment that was on the track later to be set up

I took pictures starting from the center
and then a left center
and a right center

A tractor was used to tow part of the equipment out –

There were platforms

one that had stairs and microphones set up at the top

a small platform was seen in this picture

And there were THREE DRUM MAJORS

each with a platform

two small ones right and left

and a high one in the center

where they directed the entire field!

Left Center –
One drum major to the left
and higher up
the Center Drum Major

The music flowed – the drum corp and horn section

all the while the drill team and color guard performed.

During the performance

each member set their hat on the field

all lined up in formation

off to the side

I found that to be quite effective

Right center
with the drum major
directing that side

I do not know the correct name for the instruments in front of the platform

But there were four of them

and microphones set up

and band members with horns and flutes

would climb the stairs and play from up high.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

  1. One of our nephew’s has a daughter who is a member of what is claimed to be the biggest marching band in the world. It is at Allen High School in Allen Texas and has around 740 members. Guess everything is bigger in Texas!
