DCHS Band History
Marching Band is a core component of our program.
Students who participate in the high school band program are expected to participate in marching band. This co-curricular activity includes all members of the Jazz Ensembles, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Percussion, and Color Guard classes.
Marching Band teaches students the fundamentals and skills necessary for success in our unique ensembles, including character education that will benefit the student throughout their whole life. This ensemble is unquestionably the most visible performance group in high school.
Marching Band is usually active from May to mid-October/November, and includes performances at all home football games as well as state and national-level competitions. Students can earn P.E. credit to fulfill graduation requirements by participating in Marching Band if you march for the entire season!
