We are absolutely thrilled that you will be joining the Troy Athens Red Hawk Marching Band family. As a band that consistently performs at the highest possible level, and one that thrives on building a family atmosphere, we hope you find your new home in our family as quick as possible.
Your student will be working with some of the best music, color guard and drill instructors in the state, and they will transform their performing abilities tremendously. At first glance being a member of the marching band is a large commitment, but this program will forever change your student, and teach them lessons in leadership, time management, teamwork, persistence, musicality and determination. We have a healthy mix of working hard and having fun, and you will especially see that balance during our exciting week at band camp.
It takes an enormous amount of effort from students, parents, staff and directors to field a marching band. Without the assistance from Troy Athens Band Boosters (TABB), guiding 110 students from the Marching Band Kickoff in May to our final completion in October would not be possible. Every parent and family member of a band student at Athens or a marcher that attends the International Academy is a Booster! For those returning, we welcome you back! For those who are new, we welcome you to our family. Our family takes great pride in our marching band, and we know you will too, soon enough.
All the best, Mr. Adam Cable Director of Bands
