2016 Student Member Applications
The All-City Band is officially seeking members for our 2016 summer marching band. Established in 1951 the band has become a staple of Seattle’s summer celebrations entertaining millions of people at parades and community events throughout the Puget Sound region. A top notch and award winning group, All-City receives numerous performance requests each year and has traveled to Southern California, Hawaii, British Columbia, Washington D.C., and New York City winning hundreds of awards along the way. The band is the longest running continuous entrant in Seafair’s Torchlight Parade and is a highlight of many neighborhood parades as well. As a part of this group students will improve their musicianship, learn new music and make new friends. Regardless of experience, students will be taught everything they need to know by the instructional staff of college volunteers.
There is no audition for the All-City Band. Students in the graduating classes of 2016-2020 are eligible to participate. To join, register online or mail in this registration form with your tuition payment, or bring it to the first rehearsal on June 28, 2016 at Memorial Stadium – 401 5th Ave N. If you have a student who is in need of financial assistance in order to participate please complete the attached financial aid request form and either mail it in or return it at the first practice.
