The Sarasota High School Mighty
Sailor Band is comprised of the Wind
Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Concert
Band, Mighty Sailor Marching Band,
Admirals and Commanders Jazz
Bands, as well as the Indoor Color
Guard, Winds, and Percussion
Ensembles. The band was founded,
along with the school, in 1913 and is
the oldest high school band program
in Sarasota County.
Since its creation, the band has been an integral part of school culture, performing at every home football game as well as several away games every year. On top of its duties on campus, the band is also very present in the community, performing in the Veteran's Day and Christmas Parades annually. The band has also performed in parades in New York City, London, Atlanta, and other global destinations as recently as 2015.
Over the past several years the program has developed a strong competitive presence in
the State of Florida, especially with the creation of our Indoor Color Guard, Winds, and Percussion Ensembles. Sarasota High School is the only school in Florida to offer all 3 of these types of ensembles and has won 4 State Championships over the past 3 years.
