MARCHING BAND

The Marching Cougars

The Marching Cougars' long hours, rigor of challenging music, and attention to detail consistently result in fantastic marching shows which are performed at all OHS home football games and weekend marching competitions in the local area.

Students are required to participate in the marching band if they are selected for the Symphonic Band ensemble.

Marching season begins at the end fo July with two weeks of Summer "Cougar Band Camp" at school where students learn the show for that year and ends with the VBODA State Marching Assessment (States) and the high school football season.
