PROGRAMS

The Port Chester High School Marching Band is so much more than just curriculum.

MARCHING BAND

Known as the “Pride of Port Chester”, this group performs a themed field show for the fall competitive season along with parades and other performances throughout the year.  Composed of 3 main sections, the Hornline, the Percussion, and the Color Guard.

WINTER GUARD

After November, the Color Guard forms an independent performance group called the Winter Guard which performs a choreographed dance routine to amplified music in school gymnasium competitions.  The guard activity includes flag, rifle, saber and dance.

WINTER PERCUSSION

After November, the Percussion forms an independent performance group called the Winter Percussion which performs a choreographed routine to amplified music in school gymnasium competitions.  The drumline marches on the gymnasium floor and the front ensemble (pit/mallets) perform at a stationary position up front.

JAZZ BAND

After November, the Jazz Band rehearses and performs selected Jazz and Big Band tunes at competitions and shows.  Students will have the opportunity to create their own solos through studied improvisation.  Traditional Jazz includes Saxophones, Trombones, Trumpets, Drum set, Bass Guitar, Piano, Guitar, Vibraphone.

CONCERT BAND

Whilst the Marching Band's competition season ends in early November, the Band season is an 11 months program which runs from August starting with Sectionals and Band Camp and ending in June when the Band performs at the Graduation Ceremonies. In the winter and spring months the Concert Band performances offer another opportunity to enjoy the Band.

BAND CAMP

In order to prepare our choreographed field show, the band comes together each August for two weeks of focused rehearsal. 

Band members learn the music, they learn the routines, and more importantly, they learn what it means to be a part of the Band Family.

DEAR PORT CHESTER

Dear Port Chester High School Marching Band Community,


The Port Chester High School Marching Band and the PCHS Marching Band Association would like to thank the Port Chester and Rye Brook communities for generously contributing to this year's Marching Band's Booster Drive. Your donations will go a long way in helping to support our Fall and Winter programs. The dedicated members of the Pride of Port Chester are working extremely hard in hopes of repeating last year's Championship winning season. Competition season kicked off with the new "España" program at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, CT where they took 1st place in Group  V / A Class!  The band couldn't do it without the community support. 

We continue to fundraise during the year.  There is still time to donate to the booster drive and the Fruit Sale will be starting shortly. Check back here often to learn more.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Carriero-Dominguez - Vice President PCHS Marching Band Association

Francois d’Esperies - Director of Publicity PCHS Marching Band Association
