About Us: The Highland Cavalier Marching Band

Highland Cavalier Marching Band

The Marching Highland Cavaliers were formed in 2006.  The band began with 25 dedicated members, five of which were students from local high schools.  From those humble beginnings the Marching Cavs have become a fixture on the UVa-Wise campus.  The band performs for all home football games and also performs at local and regional band contests.  Membership is open to anyone who plays a traditional band instrument, spins a flag or tosses a baton.  Rehearsals are kept to a minimum so as not to interfere with class schedules.  The focus of the Marching Highland Cavaliers is to support our athletic teams, bring an atmosphere of spirit to the UVa-Wise campus and to have fun.  Mountain Empire Community College students are encouraged to be a part of the band as well.
