Spirit of Freedom Marching Band

WHAT IS THE SPIRIT OF FREEDOM?

More than 150 members strong, the Spirit of Freedom is one of the largest and most popular co-curricular activities at Freedom High School. Marching Band consists of brass, woodwind, and percussion players plus a color guard. The band performs at home football games on Friday nights and in competitions on five Saturdays through early November. Marching Band is encouraged but not required for students enrolled in band classes.

It is our pleasure to invite you to become a part of the award winning Spirit of Freedom Marching Band! The Freedom High School Marching Band is a great activity that helps develop confidence, positive attitude, self-esteem, cooperation, and self-discipline. It also gives members the thrill of performing in a great band in front of lots of enthusiastic fans. It takes a great deal of time, discipline, and dedication; however, the rewards are well worth the effort.
