CONCERT BAND THIS YEAR:
Keep returning for updates as they happen!
The St. Michael-Albertville Marching Knights, directed by Andrew Machamer, are 70 members strong this year and growing. Their show this season consists of music from the movie Avatar. The students have really enjoyed learning and performing this strong and powerful music representing nature and industrialism and hope that you will enjoy it, as well!
A most recent addition to our Parade Units – all the way from Minnesota. We’re looking forward to this High School marching unit. We know you’ll love ‘em!
Talk about a perfect group to join our 2013 Independence Celebration. As we celebrate the War of 1812, when Havre de Grace was burned by the British in 1813, this amazing volunteer group – The American Originals Fife and Drum Corps – will wear the corps’ uniform, inspired by the US Navy’s formal dress uniform of 1812!
For over 20 years, each one of the corps’ performances has been introduced with the words, “Ladies and Gentlemen, with pride, the American Originals.” The all-volunteer members of the corps are inspired by pride to execute a difficult musical and marching program. Corps members range in age from teens to seniors, and practice many vocations, but all feel the true family spirit that permeates this unique organization. From its home in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area, the corps marches out to present American music to audiences worldwide, always aspiring to be complete entertainers; leaving fans standing, clapping, and calling for more.

What an exciting addition and I’m sure you won’t want to miss seeing this group perform.
