The Golden Silks Color Guard adds color and dynamics to the visual display of the Purdue “All-American” Marching Band during all field performances, pep rallies, and parades. The fall program emphasizes flag and movement technique while offering opportunities for rifle and sabre training. Each season the team strives for precision and excellence in performance as they take on a variety of choreographic styles to complement each new show.
During the spring semester, students auditioned and selected from the Golden Silks Color Guard compete in the Purdue Winter Guard. The Winter Guard is a member of the Indiana High School Color Guard (IHSCGA) and competes in the national level with Winter Guard International (WGI.) The Purdue Winter Guard are the 2014 and 2015 WGI Independent A Finalists and 2018 WGI Indy Independent A Class Regional Champions.
