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 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 article contains audition materials for the 2015 Sparkman Indoor Percussion Ensemble which will be held on Monday, November 10th 2014 from 4:00-6:30 PM in the S9GS Band Room. Auditions are open to ALL current band students at SHS. This year, WGI World Championships DO NOT conflict with the Alabama All-State Band Festival.
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!

This article contains audition materials for concert percussion chair placements. Auditions will take place on November 19-21 during 3rd block. For 10-12 graders, this audition will determine which concert ensemble they will be placed in (concert band, wind ensemble), as well as chair placements. For 9th graders, this audition will determine their chair placement for 9th grade concert band.
This Friday the band will travel to Russellville, Alabama for the game. This Friday is also a half day for Sparkman High School; therefore, students will be released from school around 11:40 a.m. This creates a slightly different schedule for our Friday so please continue reading.
