ENSEMBLES & COURSE POLICIES: Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA to fully participate in all band activities. All ensembles and courses are full-year commitments unless otherwise noted. 


The color guard performs in the fall semester with the Lincoln Trojan Band at football games, competitions, and other community events. Color guard incorporates dance and the manipulation of flags and other props to bring color and artistry to marching band shows. In the second semester, the color guard transitions to winter guard with rehearsals and contests in the spring at the discretion and arrangement of the instructor. Participation in the color guard requires an audition each semester. All regulations and requirements of membership in the band program will otherwise apply to all members. Members are responsible for reporting to their instructor for all activities, including rehearsals, performances, and extra activities such as fundraisers.
