With the annual Palisades 4th of July Parade approaching, Palisades Charter High School’s marching band, color guard, and drumline have each begun to prepare routines for the parade this year.
The marching band and drumline will be playing a medley of America’s Armed Forces’ orchestral theme songs for the town’s 75th parade. The color guard will be performing a unique routine with swing flags.
The PaliHi band will also be collaborating with Paul Revere Middle School musicians and some Pali band alumni, and hope to round off this year’s parade with an impressive number of marchers.
“We’re really hoping to build back up to getting more members of the community involved in the parade,” said Peter Ye, PaliHi band director. “Really, we think anyone with a connection to the Pali Band should get in touch with us and see about participating.”
Participants will have to attend a two-day training camp during the summer to perform in the parade. Dates are yet to be determined, but those interested in performing and marching should email Peter Ye (email@example.com).
