This week the OSAA announced that all Fall sports will begin in March. This will not affect our plan to run a virtual marching band with a video focus “IGNITE”. When we get closer to March we will determine what this postponed athletic season means to the Century Band. Some options might mean (pep band only, add choreography to Ignite show, do a different show, ???) . Some of this will depend on what the students want, part will depend on what NWAPA (marching band circuit) does. Most important piece for right now , we are moving forward with “IGNITE”.
About the Band
Century has close to 200 students involved in the music program. We have three bands (Concert, Symphonic, Wind Ensemble), three jazz bands, two winterguards, winter percussion, and AP music theory. Century’s Band Boosters are involved in every group at Century, making it possible for us to be one of the most successful programs in the Northwest. Century students have gone on to play professionally, internationally, and in colleges all over the United States. Our students have earned over 1 ½ million dollars in scholarships and grants. We have alumni teaching at many high schools in the area. Last year we performed over 50 times for tens of thousands of people.
