The Calgary Stetson Show Band is one of Canada’s premier marching band and performing arts ensembles, comprising of students in grades 10 to 12.
The band travels nationally or internationally each summer to promote its program and the city of Calgary. Additionally, the group performs annually in numerous events such as the Calgary Stampede Parade, Banff Canada Day Parade and Music ‘N Motion, a spring exhibition held annually in Calgary.
As a marching ensemble, the Calgary Stetson Show Band combines music with movement to produce an unforgettable experience for members and audiences alike. This program provides opportunities to develop musical skills in a unique, fun and exciting performance-based atmosphere.
The field show is the primary focus of rehearsals throughout the year. It is the telling of a story conveyed by instrumentalists and dancers through the use of drill formations, music and visual pageantry. Every year a new field show is performed, providing the students with an unforgettable experience that is uniquely personal.
