Welcome to the Marietta Band Association
The Marietta Band Association (MBA) provides volunteers, funding, and administrative help in support of Marietta City School's ever-expanding band program. Backed by enthusiastic band parents, business sponsors, and school district representatives, the goal of the MBA is to make sure our students have what they need to experience a rewarding band career: both musically and socially. From frying up funnel cakes at the stadium on Friday nights to stacking music stands after a concert, the MBA is here to provide whatever help is needed.We rely on generous donations and fundraisers to provide capital for uniforms, trips, transportation to events, supplemental instructors, instruments for economically-disadvantaged students, sheet music, and more. You can show your support by submitting a tax-deductible donation!
Marching Band 2012-13
The marching show this year at Marietta High School features music from the opera Carmen. First performed in Paris in 1875 and penned by Georges Bizet, Carmen tells the tale of a tragic love triangle between the gypsy Carmen, Jose, and a riveting toreador named Escamillo. Jose leaves his childhood love and his post in the military for Carmen, then later murders her in a jealous rage when she falls for Escamillo. The music is instantly recognizable, even to those unfamiliar with the opera itself.
The MHS marching band brings exciting visuals and energy to the music of this notorious story. We hope you enjoy the show each Friday night during football season. Be sure to check out our Performances page for game and concert dates.
