Marching Band

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. – Aristotle

The GRC Marching Band has a proud tradition as one of the most outstanding marching units in the country. Membership is open to any student enrolled in a GRC band class. Recently, The GRC Marching Band has performed in KMEA class 5A, Bands of America Regional Championships, Midstate Band Association Contests, and local parades.

Note: All marching band members, receive a .5 Arts and Humanities Credit for each fall competition season, in addition to credits earned as a member of the concert bands. Beginning in the Fall of 2017, all marching band students will also earn a half credit of Physical Education. This was approved at the June 2017 SBDM Meeting.
