Fall Program

The Color Guard at Emory & Henry College is a part of the Marching Band and music program. This unit is comprised of marching band members who add visual impact and color to the musical performance in a challenging activity that combines equipment work with dancing and marching.

Winter Program

Winter guard is an indoor color guard activity derived from military ceremonies or veterans organizations ceremonies. Unlike traditional color guard, winter guard is performed indoors, usually in a gymnasium or an indoor arena. Auditions for the Winter program will be held in the late fall and are open to all who have been a member of the E&H Marching Band the fall semester prior to the Winter season.

During the winter program, the guard continues to master their equipment skills and learn a higher vocabulary of choreography. The winter guard focuses more on dance and movement skills put in the routine to challenge the group and to bring them to the next level of precision and skill.

To be a part of the E&H Color Guard, you must be determined to practice hard and perform harder, you must show dedication to this group and your College, and you must always show professionalism, for you are an icon that is constantly watched from the minute you take the field, to the minute you leave the stadium.
