The award winning Roxbury Marching Gaels are proud to present their 2017 field show, “Ascend” featuring music by Anthony O'Toole, Eric Whitacre, David Beidenbender and Jay Bocook. The Gaels are proud to welcome Scott Slutter, music arrangements, and Bobby Jones, drill design, to their 2017 design team. Through exciting music, drill, and choreography as well as innovative use of props and electronics, the Gaels will explore a journey that takes the viewer through the sky and above the clouds. 

The Marching Gaels are a symbol of pride and excellence for the school and community. 

The Roxbury Sound was formed in 2012 to allow students to participate who were unable or did not wish to commit to the grueling schedule of the competition band. The Roxbury Sound performs a crowd pleasing, high-energy half-time show at all home football games and is a symbol of school spirit and entertainment for the school and community. Strengthening this atmosphere of unity, at the end of each home game, no matter the outcome, the Roxbury Sound plays the Roxbury HS Alma Mater while the entire football team gathers by the bleachers in solidarity to salute their school.

The Roxbury Sound will perform the exhibition finale at the 2017 Roxbury Classic this year.
