  • Our third $100 deposit for our spring 2015 Ohio trip is due the second week of April.  Please pay via check, payable to "Hilton Marching Band."  Please hand in or mail all checks to Mrs. Linda Gilbert (extra curricular accountant) at the High School main office.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Nordhausen.@

  • A NEW RECORD SCORE FOR THE HILTON CRIMSON CADETS MARCHING BAND!  Our 80.20 from our NYSFBC championship show is the HIGHEST score ever acheived in Hilton's history of competitive marching band!  Congratulations on an amazing and historic 2014 fall season!  LET'S GO CADETS!

  • Our spring 2015 rehearsal and performance schedule hass been uploaded to the "Forms & Files" section of this website, so check it out!  In addition, you can find our Cleveland/Sandusky, OH, spring 2015 trip student/parent handbook located on the "Forms & Files" page!

  • WE'RE ON FACEBOOK!  There is an awesome Crimson Cadets Marching Band facebook page.  This is a "secret" page, and thus is not able to be found in a regular facebook search.  All parents have been invited to join the page via e-mail and then invite their sons and daughters.

  • Remember, attendance is a crucial part of a successful marching band if we intend to keep the program thriving. We want to remind everyone that attendance at marching band is required as part of this credit bearing class. Please plan accordingly when you choose sports, clubs and extra activities that could interfere with Tuesday evening rehearsals.
