Marching Tiger Band

The Marching Tiger Band is a 230-person ensemble that performs a competitive halftime show at football games and local/national festivals. The Tiger Band is an ISSMA State Finalist, BOA Regional Finalist, and Grand National Semi-Finalist. The band occasionally travels to major parades, recently performing in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade (2015) and the Hollywood Christmas Parade (2017). Marching band is open to all high school wind and percussion players as well as color guard.

Marching band is the most visible group of the Fishers High School Band Program. This vibrant group of musicians practice beginning in the summer months and then on through October. During the summer, the band participates in local parades to prepare for the more intense drill work ahead. During the school year, the marching band participates in numerous Invitational competitions, which lead up to regional and state marching band competitions in late October and early November. The Fishers Marching Tigers has grown to include 180 musicians and 30 color guard performers.

The marching band is comprised of both the band and a color guard, which provides much of the visual spectacle of the performance. During a performance, each band member goes through a series of movements, or drills, which have them traveling across the field performing 50 to 60 different form sets. It takes an incredible amount of teamwork to make these complicated drills happen seamlessly.

While marching band is an extra-curricular activity, students who participate in the Fishers High School Marching Band are required to also be in one of the Concert Bands, which meet as a class daily.
