Have you heard the percussion, horns, and the beautiful sounds of the woodwinds at the recent Millbrook football games? That would be the sound of the Grand Champions winning Millbrook Marching Wildcats. The Millbrook Marching Wildcats have recently been competing and winning numerous competitions and plenty to come. Competition season typically spans from early October to early November. Having already competed in three competitions, with their show theme being blue impressions, the Marching Wildcats received the Grand Champion twice. 

 Competition day is a busy day for the band. The students arrive at school a couple of hours before they need to leave in order to warm up, rehearse, and pack the buses with their equipment. They travel together to the school that is hosting the competition.

  Marching band has a variety of people with a variety of different experience levels. Sophomore Will Davis said, “I started playing in marching band this year because I made a deal with my friend, but then I ended up loving marching band and I stuck with it.” The environment and community of the band have been entirely productive leading to their success in competitions over the years.

  When asked how the program has changed over her time at Millbrook, drum major Agnes Rodts, a senior, said,We’ve had a lot of support from parents and faculty (from building props to giving feedback and helping us get buses for competitions), and they’ve allowed us students to do what we do best: make music.” The marching band program is one with great boosters and funding and it will continue to grow in the future. 

  The program at Millbrook has inspired many students to pursue music in their future. When it comes to college, drum major and senior Elizabeth Gale said, “Currently, I am planning to continue studying music performance in college through either a music minor or through a double major.”

  The Millbrook Marching Wildcats have created lifelong relationships, and by bringing together the students, they have produced wonderful music that is always a pleasure to hear.
