Community Stories: Seattle All-City Band
Community Stories: Seattle All-City Band

Who doesn't love a marching band? The precision, the rhythm, the discipline. The Seattle All-City Marching Band brings together students from high schools throughout the greater Seattle area. The dedicated student musicians fill their summers with practices and parades, participating in more than 20 community celebrations. Formed in 1951, The All-City Band performs during the summer months when schools are closed. Its energetic performances and choreography have garnered hundreds of first-place and sweepstakes awards and entertained audiences throughout the region and beyond.
