Does belonging to a marching band count as a "Foundation, Club, Party, or Society" under Part 9 of the N-400?

Knoxville, TN |

Going over my N-400 application, and in Part 9 it asks for a list of "Foundation, Clubs, Society's, or Party's". I was a member of a volunteer marching band in Canada from middle-school till a few months before coming to the US. Does that need to be listed under part 9?
