This year, our marching band was scouted and selected to represent the state of Maryland at the Pearl Harbor Day Memorial Parade in Hawaii on Dec 7, 2022!
During this five-day trip, our band will have the honor of representing the U.S.S. Maryland which fought during the attacks on Pearl Harbor. It is an incredible honor to be the ONLY band to represent the state of Maryland at the parade. However, there are substantial costs, including approximately $2000/performer which includes airfare, the Hawaii itinerary, transporting our instruments and uniforms, and other expenses as they arise. The Booster program has committed to providing at least $500 to each performer. Our fundraising goal is at least $80,000 and we are asking for help through a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation.
Our program is well-known and award winning in the Maryland area. Our inside programs include two symphonic bands, string orchestra, jazz band, and percussion ensembles. These groups perform 4-6 times a year at a variety of events including concerts, competitions, and adjudications. Each year our marching band, indoor percussion, and indoor color guard programs perform in local circuits often receive top marks. In 2021 our marching band dominated for the season and won the title of Maryland 2A State Champion with their show “True Colors”. The student performers in our extensive and premier programs are dedicated, passionate, and musical. Our Booster organization is blessed to support a wonderful program at Century.
