Marching Band

Tim Huening:     Club Sponsor


The Northwest Marching Knights are a competitive, extracurricular performing group that is directly tied into the academic Band Classes offered throughout the school day.  The Marching Knights compete in Mid-States Band Association sanctioned events throughout the fall season (September to early November).  We perform at the most of the Varsity Football Games, community events, pep assemblies in the fall, and any other event that we are asked to be at.  This group travels to every 2-4 years.  In the past 12 years, we have traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, FL, Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH) and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Cleveland, OH).

The Northwest Marching Knights rehearse for 2 weeks in the summer (band camp), and Monday’s and Wednesday’s throughout the season.  Additional sectional rehearsals may be called if necessary.  The vast majority of our performances occur on Fridays (Football) and Saturdays (Competitions).

For students that do not play a band instrument, please check out the NHS Color Guard.  This group provides a great deal of visual impact for our Marching Band.
