For more than 16 years, the Desert Ridge High School Marching Band has been considered one of the finest marching bands in the state. They have won numerous local and state honors and have recently been selected to represent the State of Arizona in events commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day June 6, 2019. Each year this honor goes to only a few Marching Bands across the United States. Desert Ridge will be the only Marching Band representing the great state of Arizona.
The process of high performance preparation requires the students and educators to spend countless hours in rehearsals, small and large group instruction and individually practicing. Research has shown that the self-discipline and individual determination needed to perform at a high level are traits that carry over into intellectual pursuits, which lead to a lifetime of effective study and work habits.
The level of high performance maintained over the years by the Desert Ridge High School Marching Band requires expenditures that are expensive and necessary. The funds raised go towards paying for uniforms, entry fees, program fees, insurance, music scholarships, group travel, consultants and professional staff to work with students and so much more.
While it is a tremendous honor to be selected to represent the State of Arizona, to honor those who gave their lives in this momentous and daring event that marked the beginning of the end of the Nazi reign, and a new day for humankind, this honor comes with a significant increase in cost to the students and the program as a whole. With your sponsorship, the Desert Ridge Band Parent Organization will continue to support each and every student who wishes to participate. With your contribution, the boosters may operate from a consistent budget and help provide the necessary funds to successfully support the student musicians’ pursuit of Excellence.
