Quick reminder that the Carrollton Christmas Parade is approaching on 11/30/2017.  Students will wear their marching uniforms and a standard classic red Santa Hat.  Please start looking for one now to purchase.  Customized or trendy hats are not allowed, please find a standard one. Thank you!

Audition Results

We hosted our auditions last Tuesday and I am very pleased with our students progress!  Our students continue to raise the bar with what is possible.  Twenty-three students accumulated more than 150.  The Etude and Sight-reading were worth 50 each, so that means that these students accumulated more than 50 points in scales alone!  This is quite an accomplishment.  It is when the students are pushing themselves individually, that our band makes the biggest progress.  So proud of the effort by all of our students.  The link to the results is posted below:


Trojan Band Shoppe

What’s new in the Trojan Band Shoppe! All new hoodies and crewneck sweatshirts, including a new option for our COLOR GUARD, and additional youth sizing options added  for our Trojan Band hoodie and crew!

This is a limited time pre-order, now in progress, and will last till Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at midnight, in time for delivery prior to Christmas break.

Trojan Band sweatshirt options are currently available on the web store, and color guard sweatshirt options will be available tomorrow November 20, 2017 through December 5, 2017.

As always, you can order online here:


Order forms will be available at the Don Hall Band Room display after Thanksgiving Break, as well as  the Carrollton Middle School concert Monday, December 4, 2017, and the Carrollton Junior High School concert Tuesday, December 5, 2017.  The Trojan Band Shoppe will be in the lobby of the Mabry Performing Arts Center for both events.
