Panther Regiment Marching Band
The only sound of Orange County!

The Panther Regiment Marching Band is one of the most vibrant and visible organizations at Orange High School. Students involved in marching band include woodwinds, brass, percussion, and color guard. The marching band season runs from late July through October and students attend band camp prior to the start of the school year. Marching band is a co-curricular class at Orange High School, and students rehearse during the school day as well as a few after-school rehearsals throughout the week. The Panther Regiment performs at all home football games and competes against other programs at marching band contests across the state of North Carolina. 

The Panther Regiment Marching Band is under the direction of Jacqueline Johnson, with assistance from Ryan Johnson, Patrick Mitchell, Ashlyn Robinson, Larry Leal, Stephen Downing, Laura Garcia, and Eli Roegge.

Attendance at band camp is mandatory. The marching band show is designed with specific spots in the formations assigned to each participating student. When one or more students is missing, both at rehearsals and at performances, it results in obvious holes in the formation and makes it more difficult, if not impossible, to practice and perform the marching show.
