With 250 members, the San Marcos High School Marching Band and Color Guards, Knight Regiment, is the largest high school marching band in San Diego County. We are known for exciting and creative shows, as well as award-winning performances at competitive tournaments.
Since early August, we have been working hard to perfect this year’s field show, “We Come in Peace”. Now, as we enter the home-stretch before our first competition, Knight Regiment will be holding an 8-hour Rehearse-A-Thon to fine-tune our show in readiness for tournament season. Beyond the SoCal. competitions our goal is to make it as far at St. George, Utah for the BOA Reg. Championships!
This Rehearse-A-Thon is our chief fundraiser for our ‘March to the Arch’ tournament expenses and transportation. We need to raise $50,000 to make the trip a reality.
In addition to top-notch music and performance skills, our program emphasizes responsibility, teamwork and excellence. Music is only part of their experience with KR.
If you would like to show your support by sponsoring one of our students or a general donation towards KR as a whole for, Rehearse-A-Thon 2019, please fill out the information in this form.
+ If each musician is able to get 9 donors at $25 each they would exceed their goal and cover all their food costs for the trip!
+ It takes 4 buses and 5 trucks to get the students, instruments and show props to each competition.
+ Over 100 volunteers are needed to make a trip of this size happen and each local competition has a team of 30 – 40 supporting them.
+ Last year they successfully raised the needed funds to attend BOA Regionals and ranked in the top 5!
+ Studies in music are proven to raise IQ levels. But did you know while preforming their show each students body is working at the level of a marathon runners?
Join us on Sept 14th at 7 pm at SMHS for a special Rehearse A Thon dinner and meet some of our amazing volunteers and families. See them practicing on the field and learn more about what it takes to be part of Knight Regiment!
Thank you and GO KNIGHTS!
