The George C. Marshall High School Marching Statesmen are a Virginia Honor Band.
High School marching band season has begun, and the GC Marshall Marching Statesmen are working extra hard this season. They have been selected to represent the Commonwealth of Virginia in the Pearl Harbor Day Memorial Parade in Hawaii this December. Students will also perform a concert at the U.S.S. Missouri or U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. This trip is to musically honor those who have served their country, many of whom laid down their lives, and will educate the band students about this momentous event in the history of the world and our nation. No one can visit Pearl Harbor and come away unchanged. The students are very excited to be representing the Commonwealth at such an honorable event, and to also have the opportunity to visit some cultural and well known sites.
The George C. Marshall High School Marching Statesmen are a Virginia Honor Band, having received unanimous Superior Ratings from the judges at all their assessments in the 2018-2019 school year. This is a massive undertaking for the band and for some students a hardship to get there. If any person or company could help by making a contribution, it would be much appreciated.
