Marysville Pilchuck High School Band Program is an organization that is based upon pride, achievement and unity. Our Marching
Bands, Concert Bands and Jazz Ensembles have continued to receive 
the highest possible recognition throughout Marysville’s history. We are the pride of Marysville. In 2013, the Wind Ensemble received the highest possible score at the San Francisco International Heritage Music Festival, placing 1st and receiving a Gold award. The Marching Tomahawks were also nominated by the Mayor of Marysville to represent the State of Washington in the National Fourth of July Parade in Washington DC. In 2003 and 2012  MPBands received the Don Paul award at the Columbia Basin Music Festival for the most outstanding overall music department. Individuals have represented us at Solo & Ensemble contests receiving the highest possible scores. We have also been represented at the Washington State Music Educator’s Association’s All-State Band. Each year this organization has opportunities to represent our community, school, organization and selves in parades, sporting events, regional festivals and national events. Community, alumni and parent volunteers find that this organization is extremely valuable and contribute countless hours.

Members have the responsibility and choice to set high standards for both yourself and the organization. We are all part of the Living Legacy of Music in Education. Our commitment is to Music, Community and Education.

Together we can make it happen!
