Welcome to the 2018 Pride of Portola Marching Band and Color Guard!
Marching Band and Color Guard is an exciting way to be involved in the spirit of your school. It’s also a great way to meet friends and develop leadership which you can use beyond the music classroom. This season we played at our home football games, two competitive field tournaments (at Tesoro High School and Irvine High School), as well as the annual Irvine Band Spectacular. Each of these performances appearances placed our students in the public spotlight, where they served as musical ambassadors for both Portola High School and Irvine at large. In tandem with the Fall competition season, the Marching Band and Color Guard performed their 2018 field show GO WEST! at a number of home football games held at Portola Stadium, giving the general public a chance to experience our competition program at our home venue.
