Cobb County Marching Band Exhibition

Cobb County Exhibition is a wonderful event that has been occurring for many years in our District. It is an opportunity for our County Bands to see each other’s shows in a non-competitive environment and to receive comments from qualified adjudicators to help guide the growth of the band. To achieve this, the County runs two Exhibitions where half the bands perform for each other on each night with a college band performing at the end of the event. It is a fantastic event that is a wonderful opportunity for our students.

Our Exhibition is on Monday, October 15th.

SHS vs. Dalton High School

Our Football Team, Cheerleaders and Band will be traveling to Dalton High School for our Friday Night Football Game. Because this is a long trip and because the field is not ideal for performing our show, we will be utilizing a Pep Band Format. We are planning on taking around 90 students to support the team and cheerleaders and will allow the students who do not attend time to stay on top of homework and class assignments before a busy weekend.
