Preble Bands have played in Washington D.C., at Mount Vernon (George Washington’s home in VA), for Vice President Joe Biden in 2012, and at Walt Disney World. The Preble High School Marching Band’s most notable recent performance was in the 2018 New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade and on the deck of the USS Intrepid Aircraft Carrier. They look forward to returning to Orlando, FL in November 2019!
How the band will benefit from a grant:
Preble Bands are always looking for ways to grow and improve, and for new places to play! We will use this money to continue to upgrade our equipment - we are in need of concert and marching band percussion replacements and upgrades, and to help defer travel costs.
Quote from the band director:
"We are so fortunate to live in a community that values the Arts, with such generous residents and businesses. They have given us so much support over the years, which has allowed us amazing opportunities in music, and also to take what we do on the road! My goal is to instill in my students the desire to give back to their community, not only with events such as Stock the Box for Hunger, but through performances and volunteering within our own community. Students who are involved in these kinds of activities while they are students will be contributing members of their communities as adults."
