On Saturday, December 6, 2008, a local news station announced that a local Washington state high school band will be playing at President-elect Obama’s inauguration on January 20, 2009.

Evergreen High School Marching Band and Color Guard received a formal invitation to march in the upcoming presidential inauguration parade.  Evergreen was among more than 1,400 bands from across the United States to apply for the honor to play Pennsylvania Avenue, following Obama’s swearing-in.  Only about 24 bands were chosen with Evergreen High School as the only band chosen from Washington state.

It is very exciting to have a local presence at the inauguration, one that will be not only a memorable one, but a very historical one. Congratulation Evergreen High School Marching Band and Color Guard!!
