The color guard at Veterans High Schools is a part of the marching band and instrumental music department. At Veterans, students are fortunate to have a color guard class that is available during the school day during 7th period. During football season, the color guard is an integral part of the marching design, color palette, and musical interpretation of the show.
By using s flags, sabres, rifles and props to communicate the intent of the music, as well as a mix of ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary modern dance, the color guard interprets the music into a stunning visual element.
The Veterans Color Guard performs during football games at halftime and at competitions. During competitions, the guard adds to the overall score of the band; however, judges also evaluate the guard as an individual unit and assign a stand alone score.
The Veterans Color Guard consists of high school students who benefit from some of the best color guard instructors in our area. Top-quality instruction is critical to the success of the color guard and allows success and contributes to the rich tradition of excellence, which makes the Warhawk Squadron so successful.
The 2019 Season marks the inaugural year for the Veterans Winter Guard. We compete in the Southern Association for Performing Arts, SAPA, in Scholastic Regional A. Winter Guard auditions are in November and is open tall students, not just color guard members. Recently, during the Lakeview-Ft. Oglethorpe Premiere, our Winter Guard placed 1st in Scholastic Regional A. Please email the instructors with any quesitons or concerns!
