Leaders of school spirit
Directed by Scott Pierson, the Spartan Pep Band is a selective ensemble consisting of woodwinds, brass, and a rhythm section. Membership is by audition and only given to those who participated in the Spartan Marching Band the previous semester. Participants earn academic credit and have ringside seats to events. Traditionally, this band follows the athletic teams through post-season tournament action, offering travel opportunities that have taken musicians to universities throughout the western states. Every march, the band travels to the Western Athletic Conference Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas (without any cost to members).
