2020 Season Update:
Due to Distance Learning in the fall -- and moving fall sports and other activities to the spring -- our summer 2020 band camp had to be canceled. Mr. Smith will be working with Band Boosters and Riverside administration to plan for how to adjust marching band activities to fit the new spring timeline. Please feel free to reach out to Band Boosters with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Official statement from LCPS:
“Due to the move to all Distance Learning for the first quarter, Marching Band activities for LCPS have been moved to the spring. Spring Marching Band activities would be considerably scaled back from what is typically done but could, at a minimum, include a group that could support the football program and school community to some extent while building a cohesive group of students to form the foundation of the following marching band season.”
Welcome to the Marching Rams!
The Marching Rams is an extra-curricular activity that's open to all students attending Riverside High School. Sections include: Brass, Woodwind, Percussion, and Color Guard. There is also a non-marching percussion section called "Pit," with members who play the marimbas, xylophones, guitars and other rhythm instruments.
Color Guard: Students who are not in band class and/or who do not play an instrument may join the Color Guard, a visual ensemble that's an essential part of the Marching Rams. Some experience in dance is helpful but not required, as students are able to learn dance elements and equipment skills.
Marching Rams members (both band and color guard) receive a varsity letter for their participation.
For more information about the Marching Rams program, please see the drop-down menu for Marching Rams at the top of the Web site.
During the fall season, the Marching Rams participates in competitions throughout the region, and performs their half-time show at home football games.
They also promote school spirit and goodwill by playing "pep-band" music during football games, pep rallies, Homecoming parade, first day of school, state championship celebrations, Leesburg Halloween parade, and other community events.
