GUARD is FUN!

wg2020

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

We will teach you everything you need to know to perform on a NATIONAL LEVEL!
 
The Mason Color Guard performs as part of the William Mason H.S Marching Band at Home Football Games, MSBA Marching Contests, Bands of America Regionals, and Bands of America Grand National Championships!

GUARD is DANCE!

No performing art combines as many disciplines as Color Guard.
 
It is DANCE, it is PRECISION EQUIPMENT TECHNIQUE, it is THEATER!
But more than any of that, GUARD is FUN!

 

GUARD is a SPORT!

Even though Color Guard is an art form, it‛s highly competitive and physically challenging. Members of the Mason Color Guard TRAVEL and COMPETE with the Mason Marching Band in the fall. In the spring, members then perform as a separate organization, the Mason Winter Guard.

GUARD is FRIENDS!

 
As part of the Mason Band Program, the Mason Color Guard is a great way to make friends because it is one of the LARGEST Band Programs in the area!
Stay tuned to this site for more information regarding auditions for the fall marching band season (April of each year), and winter guard (November of each year)!
