Longmont High School’s Trojan Band began in 1922 when a group of ambitious students wanted to form an after-school band. It would be a few more years before a director was hired and band officially became a class. This group quickly earned the nickname, “The Pride of Longmont” and became one of the most visible ambassadors for Longmont High School and the St. Vrain community. In the years since, the Trojan Band has performed for U.S. Presidents and has traveled all over the United States and Europe.
Today, the Longmont High School band program offers nine diverse performing groups and maintains the same high musicianship standards founded nearly 100 years ago. The 130 member marching band is one of the oldest and largest in the area. Band members “bleed blue” with Trojan Pride as they provide music, entertainment and spirit at sporting events, parades and exhibition events.
The Longmont High School Drumline earned its fifth State Championship in the Spring of 2015 and is home to Blue Steel, a steel band, and a new Mariachi Band.
