News: PCC Band to Play in Tournament of Roses Bandfest Dec. 30 and 31

The Pasadena City College Tournament of Roses Band will be playing in Bandfest on Dec. 30 and 31. Bandfest, which takes place on campus at Robinson Stadium, will feature the prize-winning bands of the 2011 Rose Parade performing the field shows that made them famous.

Having marched in every Rose Parade since 1930, the PCC Tournament of Roses Honor Band has a long-standing tradition of musical excellence. The band is comprised of PCC's Marching Band members and high school students who have auditioned and made the cut. The Honor Band will have marched more than 25 miles in rehearsal before it steps off on the parade route in January.

The lineup includes local bands, as well as those from Japan and Puerto Rico. The bands will be performing on Dec. 30 at 2 p.m. and on Dec. 31 at 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. With three shows over two days, everyone will have a chance to see these talented musicians, dancers, and auxiliary performers in action.
