Welcome To The ARC Band Website!


Hello and welcome to the Academy of Richmond County High School Purple Pride Band Website. 

This years show is "The Music of Michael Jackson", and will include, but not limited to the selections "Butterflies," "PYT," and the hit "Thriller."

This season will emphasize the excellence of our marching band.  Our performances will include home and away football games as well as a few band competitions.  The ARC Color Guard will perform with the marching band at all football games and band competitions, showcasing the talents of its members.

The ARC Band Program features an outstanding concert organization in the spring.  Other ensembles such as jazz band, a percussion ensemble, a brass choir, and chamber winds ensembles may be offered in the spring.  The symphonic band has developed a reputation of musical excellence through concert and festival participation.  The symphonic Band, Jazz Band, and Percussion Ensemble will present several public concerts as well as assignments at the District and State levels.  The band is under the direction of  Mr. Arthur Wright III.

Important Announcements:

Congradulations to the ARC 2006 Symphonic Band, who performed a Grade IV in the GMEA Concert Festival and received an Excellent Rating (II). They also recived a superior rating (I) in sightreading. 


If anyone knows of companies that may be willing to donate money to our band, please let me know so I can write them a formal request.
