Our Mission
The ultimate goal of the Lawrence County High School Band program is to produce graduates who are knowledgeable about music, can perform successfully with confidence, can operate within a structured framework, and can work to develop the skills necessary to become a life-long musician. In addition, the program also strives to produce informed adults of high integrity who understand and appreciate music and musicians, and who will foster the continuing development of artistic endeavors in their community.

picProspective Color Guard Information

 Please read all the following information carefully before filling in the form in the link below. The Lawrence County High School Band program will host color guard week from April 26th-April 30th from 3:30 to 5:30 each afternoon in the LCHS Multi-Purpose building. Prospective members will be taught basic skills and a routine which will be used for the audition on Friday, April 30th. It is best to attend rehearsal everyday as there is a lot of material to cover in a short amount of time. Color Guard members from the previous year will assist new prospective members, but they must work towards mastering the new material as well. Returning member spots are not guaranteed. Each person trying out for color guard must fill in the application in the following link and pay a $20 non-refundable registration fee. You are also responsible for taking care of and returning the flag assigned to you. The $20 fee will be used for the cost of outside judges, instruction, and miscellaneous items needed for the week. Flags and poles must be paid for if they are damaged or not returned. Those trying out need to wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Barefoot, shoes without backs, and jewelry is not allowed at any time during the week. Students should always have a mask. It might be best to wear it on a lanyard. All rehearsals are closed to public view. Please note that you will be asked to name five teachers for us to send teacher recommendation forms to that have taught you at some point this year. Remember to bring your $20 fee on Monday, April 26th. Lastly, if you make the team, you must be prepared to attend after school rehearsals three days a week, every Friday football game, and four Saturday rehearsals/performances during the semester. Please do not audition if you are not willing to make the effort to be at each rehearsal. On a positive note, many of our color guard members audition and make college color guard, which includes a college scholarship. For additional information.
