The marching band is one of the most visible ensembles at L'Anse Creuse High School - North. The Marching season starts with sectionals during summer break followed by camps in August and finishes with the state championships at Ford Field in early November. During the competitive season, this ensemble performs at local and regional competitions sanctioned by Scholastic, MSBOA and MCBA. Honored winners of the Esprit de Corp award at the 2013 Huron Valley Invitational recognizing "a common spirit...inspiring enthusiasm, devotion, and strong regard for the honor of the group", the Crusaders continue to march with pride!
The Marching Crusaders are about 170 members strong consisting of musicial athletes from all 4 concert bands, the colorguard, and percussion section. There are 3 drum majors, multiple section leaders and plenty of student leadership roles. The bonding on and off the field transforms these fellow students into one big family from the incoming freshmen to the alumni support that follows the Marching Crusaders from football games to weekend competitions all season long.
