Background

For almost 40 years, the Trumbull High School Golden Eagle Marching Band has been known throughout the United States as one of the nation’s finest marching bands. They have had the privilege of marching in the 54th and 56th Presidential Inaugural Parades. THSGEMB typically consists of over one hundred musicians, 25 color guard performers, and drum majors. THSGEMB is the largest program at the high school.

The Band Director is Peter Horton.

THSGEMB participates in Musical Arts Conference (MAC) and USBands competitions during the fall marching band season. During the winter, the marching band splits into three programs: Winter Guard, Winter Percussion, and Jazz Band. Both the Winter Guard and Winter Percussion participate in MAC and World Guard International (WGI) competitions.

Past band alumni have performed in some of the nation’s most prestigious university marching bands.
