    All-City Band

    Registration is now open for the 2021 All-City Band. This is a wonderful all-school summer marching band that, under normal circumstances, rehearses four days a week in the evenings at Memorial Stadium and performs at neighborhood and community parades, especially those related to Seafair. They are preparing as though this will be a normal summer but will adjust plans as additional guidance comes out from the CDC, OSPI, SPS, and Seafair. Membership will be open to students in the graduating classes of 2021-2025.

    Right now, it is critically important that those considering participating register via the online registration on the All City Band website. This will help them to know how many students to plan for. For more information, contact
