ATHENS HIGH SCHOOL
"PRIDE OF THE HORNET"
 BAND 


Welcome  

The Athens High School Band competes in conference 4A.  We specialize in military style marching which is based on tradition with dignity and pride.  We march at all Athens High School football games, UIL Marching contest and at local parades.  During the spring semester we perform several concerts and participate in UIL Concert and Sight-reading contest.  The band most recently performed in the Disney World Parade, and has also performed in Washington D.C. , Universal Studios, and in Chicago at the Field Museum.

In May of 2020, the POTH Band will again be traveling to Florida to participate in Disney's "You're Instrumental" Sight-Reading and Sound Recording workshop. Students will get the Hollywood Recording Artist treatment, as well as hear their own band play the soundtrack music to classic Disney movies. There will be copies available to parents and band members after the session. 

Mission Statement

It is the goal of the Athens Band Program to mold our students into successful, productive adults; teaching them that through determination, diligent effort, commitment to a team and discipline that each member can achieve any task that they pursue.  We believe that true pride is based on effort, not assumed because of affiliation, but self-bestowed after struggle and strife have produced success; that "fun" in band is not meaningless folly but interaction with peers and leaders in the process of pursuing excellence.  We want our students to apply these skills to the trials that they will encounter in the road that lies ahead; to be successful in life because of what they have done in band.
