2019 Marching Band Season
Tournament of Bands Region IX Class 4 Open Champions
Bronze Medal Winners Tournament of Bands Class 4 Open
We would like to welcome you to the exciting 12th Anniversary season of the Appoquinimink High School Marching Band!
Music offers students and parents so many rewards. There are new friends to be made, new skills to be learned that help our students their whole life long, fun and hard work to be shared, joys/accomplishments, and tears to be shared. 2019-2020 is going to be a great year!
Appoquinimink High School is a member of the Tournament of Bands (TOB)

Our show this year is entitled “Time Waits for No One” and is an ominous look at the intensity we feel as time ticks down to when a long dreaded moment finally arrives!
