The Andover High School Golden Warrior Marching Band
The AHS GWMB has a reputation for excellence in Massachusetts school marching band festivals. Rehearsals are run outside of the school day, in similar manner to practice for a varsity sport. The high school members earn .5 academic credit for participating, as well as a varsity letter.
The band rehearses three times per week, and performs at all football games (home and away!), three or four competitions, Andover Veteran ceremonies and town parades. A vast majority of the band’s season is concluded by Thanksgiving weekend, but there are still several events at which the band is a presence, such as All-Bands night, and Memorial Day ceremonies.
