Marching Band

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. – Aristotle

The GRC Marching Band has a proud tradition as one of the most outstanding marching units in the country. Membership is open to any student enrolled in a GRC/RDC band class. Recently, The GRC Marching Band has performed in KMEA Class 5A, Bands of America Regional Championships, Midstates Band Association Contests, and local parades. In 2019, the GRC Marching Band placed 7th in the KMEA State Semifinals and was the Class A Champion at the MTSU Contest of Champions. In 2020 the GRC Marching Band won Grand Champion at the Commonwealth Pageantry Circuit Championships via virtual submission.
