Thank you for your interest in our program. Cleveland High School offers various opportunities for students that are interested in the performing arts. There is a place for everyone to reach their full potential through a life-changing experience.

Marching Band

The marching band at Cleveland High School is one of the largest student organizations on campus. Cleveland Arts Performance Ensemble consists of brass, woodwinds, percussion and color guard. Registration begins in May with required camps at the end of June, and two weeks at the end of July. Performances and rehearsals continue from August through the middle of November both locally and nationally. Cleveland Arts Performance Ensemble performs at the highest level of competition and takes pride in representing our community.

Color Guard

Color Guard is a fine arts performance activity that incorporates dancing, performances and manipulating props that include flags, rifles and sabers. In the fall semester, the color guard performs as an integral part of the marching band. In the winter/spring semester, they perform in a separate ensemble called Winter Guard that travels regionally and nationally for performances and competitions.

Concert Band

The Concert Band and Wind Ensemble allow students to develop their individual skills and to perform as a group based on their skill level during various scheduled performances throughout the year.


The percussion program at Cleveland consists of the fall marching percussion program as well as the concert and winter programs. In the fall semester, percussion students participate in either the front ensemble or the battery as part of the Cleveland Arts Performance Ensemble, our award-winning marching band. In the spring semester, percussion students perform with our concert ensembles as well as in a separate ensemble called Winter Percussion that travels regionally and nationally for performances and competitions.
