Dear Viking Marching Band Parents,

CONGRATULATIONS to the mighty Samohi Viking Marching Band on an amazing season! We are happy to be headed to the SCSBOA Championships this Saturday at Warren High School, which is located at 8141 De Palma St, Downey, CA 90241. See the map.

Schedule Change for Friday
  1. Please note that Friday rehearsal has been moved to 4-7:30 pm.
  2. From 7-7:30, we will have our final run-through and our annual senior circle. Come watch this fun tradition wherein the VMB seniors sit down and get serenaded by the younger students, who will play the music from "The Bard" just for them!

Note: Although the Samohi varsity football team will be in the playoffs on Friday night (GO VIKINGS!), they do not require the marching band. They will have a deejay playing tunes during the game!
