Welcome to the Sparkman High School Band Website, home of the Marching Senators. Sparkman High School is located in Harvest, Alabama just outside the city of Huntsville. The mission of the Sparkman High School Band is to foster character development in students using music through performance as the tool to build honorable and productive citizens.
The final week of marching season is here and it looks to be the biggest week of the season. The band will perform at the Brewer football game on Thursday night followed by an overnight trip with the Competition Band to Atlanta Georgia for the BOA Super Regional Championships at the Georgia Dome on Friday and Saturday.
The Sparkman HS wind players have completed their chair auditions for the 2014-2015 school year. I would like to thank all the students for their cooperation and hard work preparing for these early auditions. At this time, only Wind Ensemble results are posted. The remainder of the results will be posted soon.
This week will mark our last home game, senior night and our second competition of the year at Middle Tennessee State University's Contest of Champions.
Homecoming week will be especially busy for the Sparkman Band. We have a few changes to our regularly scheduled rehearsals and there will be a tailgate/pep rally on Thursday night. In addition, the band is planning to have three different marching performances throughout the game on Friday night. Band students should read the daily schedule of events for this week below.
We hope to welcome home a lot of Sparkman Band Alumni at the game this Friday night!
Another busy week for the Sparkman Band as we travel to James Clemens for a football game and the Competition Band will travel to Muscle Shoals to compete in their first competition of the season.
