Indoor Guard and Percussion


The CVHS Marching Band, as an extension of its educational arts program and in its desire to continue its mission in providing the youth of our high school with the means to develop life skills, foster musicianship, improve performance skills, build character and encourage teamwork while clutivating the talents of tomorrow's leaders, offers a Winter Color Guard and Percussion Program.

Participation in the Cumberland Valley Winter Color Guard & Percussion program is open to students in grades 6-12, depending on the group, who are interested in or already play percussion family instruments or wish to join the color guard.  The groups are as follows:

  • CV Indoor Percussion (grades 8-12)
  • CV Indoor Color Guard (grades 9-12 and select 8th graders)
  • CV Indoor Middle School Guard (grades 6-8)

These groups rehearse in district facilities and compete in local high school gymnasiums from December to the beginning of May.  The season culminates with Tournament Indoor Association's annual "Weekend in Wildwood," an event in which each group has the opportunity to perform at the Wildwood Convention Center.  Attendance at this event is required for participation in any of the three indoor groups.

Though the aim of the Winter Color Guard & Percussion program is to provide further training to the members of these sections of the marching band, and students are certaily encouraged to join these groups, membership in the indoor program is not required in order to be in these sections of the marching band.  Additionally, membership in these groups is not exclusive to percussionists and color guard students from the marching band.  Any student can join any of these groups if he or she is of the appropriate age.

The CV Winter Percussion & Color Guard Program is an extra-curricular activity, and as such, does not receive academic credit.

Please contact Marching Band Director, Dave Porter, with additional inquiries. Visit the CV Marching Band website for more information and a more in-depth and exciting perspective of the accomplishments of our CV band students.
