Alumni Spartan Marching Band

Save the Date

The Immaculata High School Performing Arts Department is calling all Spartan music alumni to join us on Friday, October 13, 2023 to participate in the Immaculata HS Alumni Marching Band. 

You say you haven’t spun your flag, picked up a pair of sticks, or even touched your instrument since you graduated? That’s OK, it’s like riding a bike, it will come back to you! Plus, this is about reconnecting with friends and your Spartan music family. Any notes you play or drops spins you do will be a plus to an already great day.

View the announcement on YouTube!


The Immaculata HS Alumni Spartan Marching Band will perform a medley of the IHS Marching Band’s greatest hits during halftime of the homecoming football game on Friday, October 13, 2023. We’ll shake off the rust with a brief pregame rehearsal. To celebrate the big event, there will be a social in the Spartan Center at Immaculata High School to reconnect with friends after the game. 

More details will be announced soon. To show your interest, please fill out the form below. https://forms.gle/rUjKoXLSrV7vmP6JA

Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: I haven’t picked up my instrument or equipment in years, can I still participate?
A: Of course! Play one note or play them all, we just want to see our alumni! It doesn’t matter if you haven’t picked up your instrument or flag since HS, just get out there and have some fun. 

Q: I don’t own an instrument / flag, can I still participate?
A: Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We’ll make sure we have everything you need. 

Q: This sounds interesting, so what’s the schedule?
A: Here’s the plan for the Friday, October 13, 2023 Homecoming Game and Alumni Band
Pregame (TBD) - Report to the Torpey Athletic Complex in Somerville, the location of the Immaculata HS home football games, for a quick rehearsal and to reconnect with old friends!
7:00 - Homecoming Game Kickoff. Sit in the stands with the Spartan Marching Band, play stand tunes and the Notre Dame Victory March with the 20-time Marching Band Champions, and cheer on the Immaculata Football Team!
Halftime - Play a halftime show of the Immaculata Marching Band’s Greatest Hits
Postgame - Return to Immaculata High School for a mixer in the Spartan Center to relive those Spartan Marching Band memories with friends and family. Food and beverages will be provided. 

Q: Wait what?!??! On the field, A SHOW? Do I have to go to BAND CAMP??? Should I buy sunscreen and bug spray?
A: Don’t worry, you won’t have to Camp Bernie! We’re working on a brief STANDSTILL performance for halftime. No sunscreen, bug spray, or extra comfy socks required. And we promise the food at the postgame celebration at Immaculata High School will be better than the Camp Bernie Salisbury Steak. 

Q: What if I want to prepare? Can I start to practice now? Can I see the work or the music?
A: Of course! While you don’t have to practice, we will send you the work / music so you can get ready to rock one more time as a member of the Spartan Marching Band. 

Q: Will I get fitted for a stylish, wool marching band uniform?
A: Unfortunately no, those days are behind you. We are working on some awesome Immaculata swag and a commemorative Alumni Spartan Marching Band T-shirts for everyone who participates. 

Q: I am a Spartan Marching Band Alumni Parent, can I attend?
A: Yes!! The IHS Band was built on the blood, sweat, cookies and oil change of our band parents. Come out and cheer on the band. We won’t ask you to build a prop or bake cookies. Select 'Band Parent' when you fill out the form. 

Q: I wasn’t a member of the Immaculata Marching Band, can I still participate?
A: Yes, we’d love to have you. Whether you are a friend, a fan or a family member, the more the merrier.
