The Columbia High School Cougar Marching Band is one of the most active and celebrated organizations at Columbia, and we want you to be a part of this tremendous organization. The band performs at all varsity football games, marching band competitions within New Jersey, as well as local and civic functions. As part of the band you will enjoy both a level of professionalism and dedication that is second to none, and you will build lasting friendships that will last a lifetime.
Students can join the Cougar Marching Band in one of four sections: hornline (woodwinds and brass), drum line, front ensemble, and color guard.
The Cougar Marching Band's summer training camp will be held August 26-August 30, 2019 on the campus of Columbia High School. Please note that attendance at band camp is 100% mandatory for any student who wishes to participate with the band for the 2019-2020 school year.

The participation fee also includes a membership to CHSMPA.
