The Cary Band has a strong tradition as an excellent band that combines outstanding musicianship and pageantry to produce exciting performances. We mix hard work, determination and fun to build memories that will last a lifetime. Band is an academic class at Cary High School.

Students receive academic credit and have the opportunity to earn weighted grades in certain ensembles. Band does require rehearsals and performances outside the regular school year.

Being a part of the Cary Band means you will be a part of one of the most outstanding band programs in North Carolina. As a beginning high school student you will start your high school experience knowing over 100 other students before the first day of school!
