The Marysville Viking Regiment, Freshmen Band, Concert Band and Symphonic Bands have a rich history of strong band performances.
Much of this is due to the high expectations of staff and the relentless work of the students. Be sure to know, though, there is no replacement for the support of the caring adults in a band student's life. Your role can never be, nor should it ever be, minimized. Behind every good band performance is a loving adult who makes sure their individual student is practicing, receiving appropriate private instruction, wearing appropriate uniforms, has necessary accessories for their instruments, gets their student to all events and all the other little things that go unnoticed. Thank you for helping to keep the "Standard of Excellence" that has been established consistently throughout the Marysville Instrumental Program!
