Owing to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Band Week has been cancelled for 2020. This is a difficult decision that has been made for the sake of student safety and to ensure the highest level of success for the members of our Marching Mocs family. However, the UTC Marching Mocs will still be rehearsing and performing like normal!
The first rehearsal of the UTC Marching Mocs will take place on the first day of classes, Monday, August 17th at 2:00PM at the UTC Intramural Grass Field. All registered Marching Mocs members please check your email for more information. If you are not yet registered, please contact Michael Griffith at [email protected].
Auditions for the colorguard take place during Band Week and members of the group are part of the Marching Mocs. Members of the colorguard must register for the class and are eligible for the marching band stipends.
These videos provide warm-up exercises and routines for prospective guard members to proactive this summer:
