Welcome to the Athens band program! Under the direction of Adam Cable, the band program services over 200 students involved in symphonic band, concert band, campus band, jazz ensemble, marching band, and winter guard. The Athens ensembles have won many awards and honors including consistent First Division ratings at MSBOA District and State Band Festivals. They have participated in events all over the country, including marching in America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and performing for the astronauts aboard the International Space Station via NASA DOWNLINK. The Red Hawk Marching Band has performed regularly in the MCBA state marching band championships for four decades! Field trips, special clinics with professional musicians and performances by visiting artists further enrich our students’ musical experience.
