OF THE TRADITION
WHO WE ARE
Carrying on a long tradition of excellence, the California High School Marching Band and Color Guard is one of the finest marching units in the Tri-Valley area. It is the largest performance ensemble at Cal High and has a strong history of competitive success. You will see them performing year-round at football games, school rallies, local parades and field competitions.
Students can elect to join the hornline (brass and woodwinds), the drumline (snare, quad, & bass drums), the front ensemble (mallet percussion, auxiliary percussion and keyboards), or the color guard (flag, rifle, sabre and dance).
The Marching Band rehearses during the Fall on Monday and Wednesday evenings, as well as some Saturday mornings and afternoons. The band typically competes in 4-5 field competitions, marches 1-2 parades, and performs at rallies and home football games.
