The Alvarado Marching Matadors are a very successful marching group that represents the best of RUSD.  This military style marching groups comprises of 7th & 8th graders who are placed into the Advanced Band. 
During the fall season this advanced group marches throughout southern California performing in both Band Review's and local parades.  We have been invited to participate at the Disneyland parade down Main Street USA and at the Otay Ranch Band Review.  This group is ranked among the top middle school marching programs in our state.
This group of students learns military style marching (cadence) and are skilled young musicians. The band forms lasting relationships while learning leadership skills working in a close knit unit.  
We transition to Concert music during the Winter months and perform at local music festivals and regional festivals.  This concert group has performed at Disneyland and Walt Disney World in Florida. The Marching Matadors have won many awards including three Superior Awards over the last several years.
