Uniting Friends, Families, and Alumni of the Avon Marching Black & Gold
The Avon Marching Black & Gold and the performing arts programs that are associated with it have a proud and winning tradition that has impacted hundreds of Avon students over the past decades. Long before the program was winning state and national titles, young musicians learned the spirit of teamwork and the value of hard work while they made lifelong friends. Now, the Avon Band program is renowned for the incredible musical performances that make it one of the premier programs in the United States. More important, the program works with any student who is willing to show up on time and truly strive for excellence. There is no junior varsity in the Avon Band. Participation in the band teaches the things we value most: hard work, the pursuit of excellence, and teamwork.
Whether you are a former student, band parent or friend, you are part of a grand tradition. The lessons learned in marching band go far beyond the time spent in high school. Help us preserve the Avon Marching Black & Gold for generations to come!
Avon Band Together supported10 students for 2017 Marching Season and 5 students for the Winter Season of 2018. In addition to participation in regional, state and national competitions that all occur in central Indiana, participation in the band provides an opportunity to travel and learn about America first-hand. These are opportunities that kids from disadvantaged families may otherwise not experience. The 2017 Marching Black & Gold traveled to Ohio and Texas to participate in BOA Competitions. Who knows what is in store for the 2018 Marching Black & Gold!!! We would again like to provide support for 10 students for the 2018 Marching season.
Help make sure band is accessible to all of Avon’s kids – Join Us!
