The Havre de Grace High School Warrior Pride Marching Band was chosen to perform in the prestigious Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, D.C., Saturday, April 13.
The marching band auditioned for the parade for the first time and was selected to be a part of a special All-Star Maryland marching band. The Warriors band will be combined with the Westminster High School marching band and the two will have the privilege of leading off the parade, band director Rick Hauf said.
The parade travels down Constitution Avenue from the Washington Monument to the White House and is televised live in the D.C. market. The coverage is also streamed live on the Internet. It will be the Warrior Pride's first televised parade.
The Warrior Pride consists of more than 120 students, including the flag line and cheerleaders, which is almost 20 percent of the entire school.
The Warrior Pride performed last spring in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Next fall the band will be traveling to New York City to perform in the Veterans Day parade.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
