The Castle All Band Festival will feature Concert and Jazz Bands from Castle South Middle School, Castle North Middle School and Castle High School.

The Castle Band Programs will be recognized with the John Phillip Sousa Foundation’s Sudler Shield Award, recognizing high school marching and band programs that have achieved a world class level of excellence and also be awarded a rare international recognition from the John Philip Sousa Foundation.

At the conclusion of the All Band Festival, all concert bands will perform together “America the Beautiful” at which time every student active in the Castle Band Programs will perform at the same time. This is the first year the number of concert band students performing at the same time will exceed 700 middle and high school students.

Congratulations to the Castle Band program on an outstanding year!
