The Big Red Marching Machine
Marching Band at Port Huron High School is a Co-Curricular activity, meaning it does not run during the regular school day but is an extension of the work done in the three concert groups at PH. Big Red Marching Machine members rehearse during the fall on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:00p.m. until 8:15p.m. Membership in the BRMM is determined by an audition done during the Spring.
