The Battle High School marching band is comprised of students and staff from various junior high and high schools across Columbia, but all of them have now joined to form one unified group to form the Battle High marching band.

COLUMBIA — “Take it from set 14,” band director Robert Thanlhuber called to a group of about 30 high school musicians holding a variety of instruments from flutes to trumpets to one base guitar. The band members' ages range between 13 to 17.

The band is new but the routines are well established. Music must be learned, polished and memorized. Marching basics have to be taught and each set on the field must be committed to memory before all of the components are combined.

The Battle High School marching band is comprised of students and staff from various junior high and high schools across Columbia, but all of them have now joined to form one unified group to form the Battle High marching band.

With one week left in band camp, the marching instructors say they are confident in the band’s ability to pull off the show and fight song together by its first performance.
