The marching band is one of Woodstock High School’s most thrilling and vital ensembles. It’s a spirited and supportive group of dedicated young musicians and artists who take great pride in their artistic performance and competitive achievement. They're also one of the most active groups on campus. They perform at pep rallies, football games, community events, fundraisers, competitions, and beyond.
