2018 GHR BAND CAMP LETTER

The Golden Hawks Regiment

The Golden Hawks Regiment is the Holly Springs High School award winning marching band.

The ensemble has earned close to 200 caption awards, many championships and superior ratings.

The ensemble is open to ALL instrumental and guard members of the program, and is strongly encouraged for all freshman, as many of the musical concepts covered over the entire year begin in late July rather than the first day of school.  The GHR requires dedication, attendance, and financial commitments.  The members begin their school year early – around the end of July – to get ready to perform and compete.  Students must go through conditioning and exercise to be able to perform at top level and that is why they need those few weeks before the beginning of school. Camp usually runs for about two weeks, twelve hour days with drill, music, and camaraderie.  The GHR performs at all varsity football games in the fall, as well as Saturday marching contests in October and November, various parades and other performances requested by our school or community.  The ensemble rehearses after school, three days a week.  A uniform, and band t-shirt are provided by the organization.  Marching shoes, gloves, and some guard items are financial responsibilities that accompany membership in this organization.  All students are assessed band fees (Fair Share).  Payments will be made on a regular basis throughout the season to the HSHS Band Boosters.
