Huntingdon Bands Host Marching Honor Band

Montgomery, Ala.—More than 300 high school musicians are expected to join the Huntingdon College Marching Scarlet and Grey for the 2016 Marching Honor Band, Saturday, September 17. The students represent more than 40 high schools in Alabama and Northwest Florida.

The annual Marching Scarlet and Grey Marching Honor Band includes winds, percussion, drum majors, color guard, and majorettes in grades 9 through 12, in addition to the members of the Marching Scarlet and Grey. The experience is offered at no cost for the high school musicians, who rehearse and perform with college musicians and band and auxiliary directors before, during, and after a Huntingdon Hawks football game, and are each given an Honor Band t-shirt and commemorative pin. Guest musicians wear their high school band uniforms.

The Marching Honor Band will rehearse during the morning hours and the combined bands will march from Flowers Hall to W. James Samford Jr. Stadium in the College’s traditional Hawk Walk at approximately 12:30 p.m. The combined bands will perform in the pre-game, half-time, and post-game shows as the Huntingdon Hawks face Belhaven University for their second home game of the season. Kick-off is at 1:00 p.m. Stadium admission prices are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6–12 or for visiting students with valid IDs, and free for children under age 5 and for Huntingdon students, faculty, and staff with valid IDs.
