Mighty maroon Band
WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF
THE PRIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN EMPIRE
The band program at George Wythe High School and Scott Memorial Middle School has been a symbol of success and pride for the high school and residents of Wytheville since the first notes were played over 68 years ago. With students ranging from 6th to 12th grade, the band program is made up the SMMS 6th and 7th Grade Bands, the GWHS 8th Grade/High School Concert Band, the Mighty Maroon Marching Band, and the GWHS Indoor Drumline and Winter Guard. With an emphasis on hard work and dedication the GWHS Concert Band is a 3 time Virginia Honor Band.
The bands are under the direction of Mr. Dan Wilner.
The NYC Trip is currently postponed due to the travel ban initiated by WCPS because of ongoing concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. We are currently talking to the travel company and will provide additional information as soon as possible. Our hope is the trip can still take place at the beginning of the summer.
