The Black Watch Winter Guard is a world-class ensemble that competes every year from November through May.
The group is comprised of local performers who audition through a series of events in the fall. The season is comprised of several weekend rehearsals where the show is taught. The highlight of the season is traveling to Dayton, OH to compete nationally in the Winter Guard International Championship Competition.

The Black Watch 2021 is proud to present our program “RE:FLECTION”
As we navigate this new journey in performance art and expression, The Black Watch is excited to spend our 55th anniversary exploring this new medium. During the 2021 season, we will be taking a step back from the competitive spotlight to re-focus on the organization and our future by participating in the WGI eShowcase. Our program challenges the viewer to re-examine their day-to-day life. Do we continue with our old habits? Or do we create a space that is equitable to all?
In an increasingly drab and monotonous world, originality has become obsolete. Machinery has replaced the once vibrant artisan. Factories have out-purposed skillful hands. Suddenly, in an earth-shattering moment, all that is considered the norm is questioned. In RE:FLECTION, we imagine a world where individuality is not only permitted, but celebrated. As factory workers look through the mirror, they ask themselves “Who am I, really?” Join The Black Watch as we dive deeper into exploring what is right and self-discovery.
