The Marching Black & Gold has become one of the leading marching bands not only the in state but throughout the entire country. Having become the 1st marching band to ever win 7 straight state championships, the Avon Marching Black and Gold is a consistent national finalist. In 2008 The AMB&G won its first National Championship. The Marching Band then went on to win the next two national titles becoming only the second band in history to win 3 national titles in a row. The Avon Marching Black & Gold was invited to the 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade in 2012. This is by far our most popular activity among our students. Over 90% of all high school band students participate in marching band. While it takes dedication and time, the benefits are quite extraordinary. Students learn how to work together in a team effort, as well as enjoy traveling and performing together in a competitive environment.
