Color Guard / Winter Guard
The McLean High School Color Guard is a vital component of the Marching Band, and it continues to grow each year. Under the direction of Lindell Palmer the Color Guard consists of student athlete/performers who spin, toss, dance and perform with flags, rifles and sabres to enhance the Marching Band field show performance. They are integral to the Marching Band in the summer and fall, and may not necessarily be members of the band music program. Participating in color guard demands athleticism, coordination, strength, artistry and a passion to perform!
At the conclusion of the fall marching season the McLean Winter Guard program begins. Two winter guard teams (Red and Silver) train and compete in the Scholastic division in the Winter Guard, and competition circuits. Students will audition for placement on the Red and Silver teams.
