SOSP Percussion Updates: Winter rehearsal dates for students interested in the Sound of Sun Prairie marching band percussion section will begin in January 2017. These rehearsals are open to anyone interested in SOSP Percussion. Students and staff will begin work on building the skills and fundamentals to jump into learning our marching band show in the spring.
SOSP Color Guard Updates: We are close to confirming our guard staff for the 2017 season. While we won’t be having a winter guard this year, we are hoping to have an active winter season with rehearsals beginning in January and possibly attending a WGI Show (Winter Guard International) as a social and educational opportunity. STAY TUNED!!!
Summer marching band in Sun Prairie will celebrate 45 Years in 2017!
It started as the "Marching Cardinal", then the "Cardinal Guard", and now continues as the "Sound of Sun Prairie."

About the Sound of Sun Prairie:
The Sound of Sun Prairie is a voluntary, extra-curricular marching band. It is comprised of 8-12th grade students who have an interest in performing with percussion and wind instruments or color guard.
The purpose of the Sound of Sun Prairie is to provide an environment in which students can learn to work cooperatively toward common goals, the power of positive attitudes, personal responsibility, self-motivation, individual sacrifice for the good of the group, and striving to work to the best of one’s ability at all times. It is a student-centered organization that promotes personal growth and student leadership. The band’s philosophy is based on the belief that learning to be successful in marching band involves the same process as learning to be successful in other endeavors and that understanding the process for success is the most important part of attaining success.
SOSP is a member of the Mid-America Competing Band Directors Association (MACBDA) and it follows their schedule of events. This includes marching and competing in parades and field show competitions throughout the Midwest.
