Forte Winter Guard

Who are we?

Forte Winter Guard, our indoor guard ensemble, is open to any Souderton Area High School student who participated in the Big Red Marching Band in the same year. Students do not need to have prior color guard experience.

Members of this group are expected to apply themselves towards excellence in visual performance. These performances include, but are not limited to, dance and equipment work based on predetermined themes.

The ensemble performs several competitions and exhibitions throughout the winter and spring seasons.
