Avon Marching Black & Gold are Grand National Champions

Avon Marching Black & Gold are Grand National Champions

Once again, the Avon Marching Black and Gold are the Bands of America Grand National Champions, winning their fourth championship in the competition.

The Avon Marching Black and Gold (AMBG) have appeared on the podium at the Bands of America competition each year (with the exception of 2020 when the competition was canceled) since 2007, including a string of three consecutive victories in 2008, 2009, and 2010. During that unprecedented run of success, they brought home five bronze medals for third place and seven silver medals for second place, making AMBG a model for high school marching bands across the nation.

We are so proud of all 248 student-musicians and all the directors, educators, parents, volunteers, and supporters who make this all possible!

BONUS: Listen to a special episode of the Orioles In-The-Know podcast to hear Superintendent Dr. Wyndham talk with Director Matt Harloff and Assistant Director Karl Harman about the experience of becoming national champions.
