The Fremd Viking Marching Band is an extra-curricular ensemble that rehearses outside of the school day August through October. The band is made up of 105 students from all four grades, as well as the Fremd Guard (flags). The VMB is directed by Matthew Moore and JT Teichert. Additional staff include Jami Hockensmith, Shana Dinham, Melissa Schlesinger, Andrew Veit, Joe Tang, and Dana Young.
The 2017 fall production is entitled "The Haunted Manor". The show will take the audience through a candle-lit Victorian home. From the outside all seems well, but on the inside… the ghosts are in charge! Featuring the music of Destati from "Kingdom Hearts", Dies Irae from Verdi's "Requiem", Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain", Bartok's "Dance Suite no. 77", Ice Dance from "Edward Scissorhands", and the Witches Sabbath from Berloiz' "Symphony Fantastique".
During the 2017 VMB season the band will perform at all home football games, as well as performing at marching band competitions at Stagg HS, Wheeling HS, Downers Grove South HS, and Northern Illinois University.
