Allegany Marching Band – 2013

Advisor: Mr. Larry Jackson

The Allegany High School Marching Band is one of the oldest school marching organizations in the State. It has a storied history, having played for three U.S. presidents and garnered a reputation as one of the best bands on the East Coast. Through the years the Allegany Band has been the recipient of hundreds of awards for their marching and musical excellence. The Allegany Marching Band is the reigning Chapter champion of the last thirteen years, has captured many state championships, and has finished the last fifteen seasons at the Atlantic Coast Championships as a top ten finalist, including last year’s second place finish. The Allegany High School Marching Band is under the direction of Larry T. Jackson.

 

The Allegany High School Band Program with its associated performing groups strive to perform at the highest possible level at all times. The highest priority is the setting of goals consistent with aesthetic education and artistry. The band represents Allegany High School, the City of Cumberland, and the state of Maryland as a goodwill ambassador, and strives to be first-class in all of its endeavors.

 2013 Show:

 The Allegany High School Marching Band’s field show is entitled “Desire.” The show is an exploration of a famous quote by George Bernard Shaw: “There are two tragedies in life: One is not to get your heart’s desire, and the other is to get it.” The story is told through the conflict of the band and guard. The guard desires something they may not ultimately want; the band desires to keep it locked away.
