2017-18 Color Guard Auditions

The Memorial Color Guard will host a Color Guard Training Clinic & Audition for the 2017-2018  school year during the week of April 24-28 from 4:00-5:30pm in MHS Gym #3.  Any student that will attend Memorial High School next year is invited to attend.  Students will learn dance basics, flag basics, and a short routine for the audition on Friday.  The Audition Packet is available on the left under Handouts. 

Memorial Color Guard

In the Fall semester, the Memorial Color Guard performs with the Mustang Band at all marching band performances including football games, pep rallies, and marching contests.  The color guard provides an important visual color to the marching show design.  They incorporate body movement and dance as they spin flags, rifles, and sabres.

Memorial Winter Guard

In the winter and spring months, the color guard participates in the Texas Color Guard Circuit series of competitions as the Memorial Winter Guard.  The winter guard performs a choreographed routine using dance, dramatic expression, colorful flags, rifles, sabres, costumes, props, and recorded music to create an amazing show.  Please see Mrs. Thompson in the Band Hall for more information.
