Crawford County Marching Arts program encompasses the Marching Band, Colorguard, and Drumline activities of Crawford County Jr/Sr High School in Marengo, IN. The program, founded in 2006, strives to teach life lessons through a competitive music education setting.
In the fall of 2006, the Marching Wolfpack made its competitive debut in Corydon, IN. Getting dead last by many points, the band program set out on a goal to have constant improvement. At the end of the year, they finished with a Silver rating at the ISSMA Festival Class show, a non-competitive but state run invitational. In 2007, just one year after their debut at the same location, the Marching Wolfpack won their class at the Corydon invitational sweeping all captions.
Silver ratings at the ISSMA district contest in Jasper, IN followed in 2007 (class C) and 2008 (class D) as the band grew in size and quality. In 2009, armed for the first time with a full staff, the band took the next step and advanced with a Gold rating at the ISSMA district contest (class D) and performed at the ISSMA Regional contest in Evansville. In 2012 the band advanced on to Semi-State for the first time in school history, mere points behind a coveted State Finals spot. They repeated that feat in 2013.
The Marching Arts operates the Colorguard and Winterguard program. The Winterguard competes annually in several TriState Circuit shows, while the colorguard performs in the fall with the marching band. Coming from a guard of 0 in 2005, to 16 in the program in 2012, the guard has seen its share of growth over the years.
Also under the Marching Arts umbrella is the drumline and Winter Drumline. The Winter Drumline is a group focused on the continuing education and growth of the percussion program, and serves as a tool to prepare the percussionists for the rigors and demands of the fall marching season. Also performing in the TriState Circuit, the group earned a Silver Medal at the 2013 Class B championships.
The 2014 season looks promising, as the band returns a large percentage of students and staff, and welcomes in a new class of excited young students. Watch out for the CCMW this fall, as it looks to take 'the next step' towards State Finals with their program "Everyday Heroes."
