Winter Guard - The Guard Facebook page is here.
The Downers Grove South Winter Guard performs indoors, usually in a gymnasium or an indoor arena. Performances make use of recorded music rather than a live band or orchestra. Winter guard ensembles commonly perform at judged competitions officiated by local and regional associations such as Midwest Color Guard or WGI - Sport of the Arts.
Winter Guard hosts a Winter Guard Festival at Downers Grove South High School every other year. This year the Festival will be held on February 4, 2018. Come to our Preliminary Parent Meeting on December 12, 2017 at 8:00 pm to learn about the Festival. Click here for a flyer.
