Gilbert High School has one of the most decorated marching bands in Arizona.
The Gilbert High School band program, under the skillful leadership of Director Ron André, has been recognized as one of the top high school marching bands in the nation. The Tiger Pride Marching Band performs in the stands and during halftime at Gilbert High School varsity football games, and participates in competitions in Arizona and California.
In addition, the Tiger Pride has been invited to participate in regional and national events including the Rose Bowl Parade and the Presidential Inaugural Parade. They have traveled as far as Dublin, Ireland, and on January 1, 2021, the Gilbert Tiger Pride Marching Band will once again participate in the London New Year's Day Parade.
In 2017, the marching band traveled to Hawaii to participate in the Waikiki Holiday Parade over Thanksgiving break.
We hope that when the time comes to register for classes for the fall of 2019, marching band will be included on your schedule! If you have questions about joining the Gilbert Tiger Pride Marching Band for the 2019 season - our program, parent involvement, fees, time commitment, band camp, anything at all - please contact: Director of Bands Ronald André at [email protected]
