About the Band
Forming in 1961, The East Syracuse Minoa Spartan Marching Band has a long tradition of creating confident young adults through music, dance, discipline and teamwork. The band is a member of the New York State Field Band Conference and currently competes in the Small School 1 Division. The Spartans have 7 New York State Championships, most recently in 2017.
The band has been led by Director Gibs Flock since 1989. The East Syracuse Minoa Spartan Marching Band, High School and Middle School Winter Guards and Winter Percussion Ensemble consists of students in grades 7 through 12. The program's existence enables members to become better performers and experience the benefits of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. It is the responsibility of each member to work diligently toward raising the ensembles level of excellence. To achieve this goal, ensemble members are expected to participate in activities to the fullest degree and make the most of every rehearsal moment. Participation in the activities that help foster and support the organization is also a rewarding experience. Achieving these goals has allowed all of the ESM Marching Ensembles to enjoy a rich and proud history.
