The Invincible Marching Marauders Summer High School Band Summer Clinic is an opportunity for high school marching band students to improve their musicianship and marching skills as they contemplate an audition for the Invincible Marching Marauders. Under the direction of marching band staff and student leaders, participants learn the music and military-style marching fundamentals used by the Invincible Marching Marauders in a family oriented, fun and collegial environment.
