Gautier High hosting third annual Swamp Classic Marching Band competition

Grab your marching shoes and an instrument, it’s almost time to head to the swamp.

Gautier High School is hosting their third annual Swamp Classic. The Swamp Classic is a marching band competition from different schools in the area.

It’s the first marching band contest that most bands will participate in this marching season.

There are currently 20 high school bands signed up to participate as well as exhibitions to be performed by William Carey and South Alabama. Gautier High Band Director Christopher Chandler said, “The coolest thing is, being able to provide this opportunity for the students. And so, you know, COVID was rough for everybody, and last year was our first semi-normal year back into the marching band competition season. And this year, now that COVID regulations have kinda relaxed a little bit, I’m really excited to see all of these students be able to participate fully in what they love.”

Arm bands will also be sold for $10 for those who wish to watch.
