MARCHING EAGLE BAND
The ACA Marching Eagle Band is an award-winning marching band that travels and competes throughout the state of Alabama. This group is comprised of young musicians and color guard members that develop and perform a field show for competition. These students share a passion for performing and strive for excellence.
AUDITIONS & MEMBERSHIP
ACA's Marching Band is made up of 8th-12th graders who have met the playing requirements to be in Advanced Band Class. The current requirement for Marching Band is that students can demonstrate mastery of the skills learned in Beginning & Intermediate Band. In addition, students must demonstrate the ability to perform all 12 major scales.
Band Camp is always held during the last two full weeks before school begins. Percussion and Color Guard will have a pre-camp week prior to the full band camp due to the level of time needed to learn their parts/routines. Band Camp is taught by the ACA directors, camp staff, and student leadership. Approximately "7 weeks worth" of normal rehearsal time is crammed into two weeks so attendance is a MUST.
