The Spirit of Great Oak Marching Band is a competitive unit that practices with an Athletic Teams Schedule. It is an "after school," 7th Period (only 6 periods in the day) course. Our practice schedule is M/W/F (6-9 PM) and T/Th (2:45-3:30 PM). Students in the Ensemble are expected to be at every rehearsal, and performance.
Performances take place on Game Day Fridays, and Competition Tournaments on Saturdays. Additionally we will have Saturday rehearsals leading up to the Competitive Season. Other activities include "Band Day," at a Southern California University (e.g. SDSU or UCLA), Fund-Raiser Performances, and Parades (e.g. Temecula, Theme Park).
A Unique Lifetime Opportunity: In the Spring of 2017 The Spirit of Great Oak was selected to perform in the London New Year's Day Parade, and Festivals. Members of our marching band have the opportunity to travel to London and Scotland to perform, tour, and experience a unique life experience through travel. Several family members (Parents, Siblings, and Grandparents) are invited to join the tour, as well. For more information on the cost and timing of payments (May join our performance adventure as late as September, 2018), be sure to visit our web site and click on the "UK Adventure Images."
