The Marching Band

The Highland Park High School Highlander Marching Band

All members of the HP Band, including woodwinds, brass, pit percussion, drum line, and color guard, are members of the marching band in the fall semester. This ensemble performs at all home and away football games, parades and scheduled marching contests. Since the full band is divided into first and second periods, the full marching band rehearses each morning from 6:45-7:50 am on the football field next to the band hall. Other rehearsals may be scheduled outside of these times for clinicians or guest directors.


The 2017 Highlander Band made HPHS history by advancing to the State Marching Championship for the first time in school history. Not only did the band participate in the marching competition, they catapulted into the finals and placed 10th in the State of Texas. Not bad for their first appearance at this level of competition!
