As the Seattle All-City Band gets ready for a summer full of performances in Seafair parades and other community celebrations, they are also on the lookout for alumni.
This year marks the 60th year for the band! To celebrate, they are looking for enough alum to make up a separate band. “We hope to find enough alumni members to have a separate alumni band, which is quite an undertaking,” said Marcus Pimpleton, director of the group. “I think it will be a great experience to have our newest members and those who haven’t played in decades performing in tandem.”
The All-City Band, which is comprised of musicians from throughout the city, was founded in 1952 and is the longest continuous entrant in the Seafair Torchlight Parade. They have also won countless sweepstakes awards in the region’s parades throughout their history.
