Marching Band / Color Guard
Marching Band is a competitive and entertainment group that combines movement and musical performance. The group performs at band competitions, football games, and various performances throughout the school year. It is also an outstanding social activity. All woodwind and brass instrumentalsists are required to be enrolled in a performance class and are expected to participate in spring clinics and attend Band Camp to gain proficiency in the necessary skills. Marching Band and Color Guard are open to all Chatham High School students. It should also be noted that student roadies are always needed to assist the members in their performances. Contact Mx. Lemley for additional information.
String Quartet is open to members of Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra. This performing group plays selections of light classical, popular and movie music for school functions (such as Back to School Night or the Art Show) and community events throughout the school year. String Quartet does not have a conductor – students who participate will find an opportunity to take on leadership roles to direct the Orchestra and to work together to plan program selections appropriate for each event or performance. For more information, please see Mr. Keller.
