This year, Sean and Maria’s son’s Century High School 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!
This is an amazing opportunity and we need your help. The team can’t make it without community donations. Learn more about this event below or make a tax-deductible donation here.
About the Event
During this five-day trip, the Century High School 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 $2,000/performer which includes airfare, the Hawaii itinerary, transporting instruments and uniforms, and other expenses as they arise. The Booster program has committed to providing at least $500 to each performer with a fundraising goal of at least $80,000.
About the Band
The Century High School marching band program is well-known and award-winning in the Maryland area. 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 the marching band, indoor percussion, and indoor color guard programs perform in local circuits often receive top marks. In 2021, the band dominated the season and won the title of Maryland 2A State Champion with their show “True Colors.” The student performers in this extensive and premier programs are dedicated, passionate, and musical.
