Rehearsals on Event Days
Marching rehearsals MAY take place at O’Connor on each of the event days. Rehearsal times will be announced as event details are finalized.
Band and Color Guard students should block out the majority of the Saturday contest dates for rehearsals, performances and traveling to and from the events.
Please be sure to review the Marching Band Policies & Procedures, especially those regarding jewelry, nail polish, food, gum, and candy. It is imperative that all students abide by these rules during contests.
Also, make sure you have black socks and that your marching shoes are clean and polished for each marching event.
Parents, families and friends are invited and encouraged to attend the marching contests to support and cheer for the O’Connor “Panther” Band. Some events charge a nominal admission fee.
