Here's more about Alta Marea:
Each year, members of The University of Alabama Million Dollar Band Color Guard are selected to represent The University of Alabama by performing and competing with the Alta Marea Winterguard. Alta Marea, meaning “high tide” in Italian. Rehearsals began in November prior to the competitive season beginning in January. Throughout the spring months, Alta Marea travels to competitions cross the Southern and Eastern United States. The season ends in April in Dayton, Ohio where Alta Marea competes against winter guards from around the world at the WGI World Championships. The program is historically successful and last year, Alta Marea Winterguard proudly competed in finals at world championships.In addition to continuing practice with the Million Dollar Band Color Guard during football season, the winter guard has an extensive weekly practice schedule while staying committed to maintaining high academic standards. The ladies of Alta Marea represent academic colleges across The University of Alabama campus with majors ranging from education to advertising to engineering and many more. All of the members of Alta Marea remain in good academic standing and work hard to succeed in both winter guard and academics.
We're asking y'all to come out and support Alta Marea. The Steve Shannon Morning Show's Intern Lena is a member of Alta Marea, so we're a little biased!
