  • D.C. Update

    1. Thank you so much to everyone who has paid off their accounts.  With the final payment for the trip due very soon, this money is crucial!!  If you have not settled your accounts please do so by June 2, 2017.  If that is not a possibility, please reach out to me with an update so I know how to best advise our treasurers.
    2. Attached you will find our itinerary for the trip.  One major change for me is the omission of the day before rehearsal.  It was something that I was used to having when working with this particular parade company in the past and so I was sure there would be a rehearsal.  Instead there will be warm up time on the morning of, but no official rehearsal the day before.  Please note the FLEXIBLE ITINERARY piece if you are planning to follow the band on your own.  It means that the tour company has the right to change anything at the last minute, so please stay in contact with the chaperones and myself for up to the minute changes.  There will be more in depth information about each of the events such as dress code at our next parent parade meeting to be scheduled for late May or Early June.


Have a great weekend!!

Local Marching Band to Represent PA in National Independence Day Parade

Coatesville’s Marching Red Raiders Only PA Band Selected to March in D.C. on July 4th

COATESVILLE, PA—March 30, 2017 – The Coatesville Red Raider Marching Band has been selected to represent the State of Pennsylvania in the 2017 National Independence Day Parade in Washington, D.C. The Marching Red Raiders are the only band from Pennsylvania selected to participate in this year’s parade, and this will be the school district’s first appearance in the annual, nationally televised event. U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, R-7, of Chadds Ford, nominated the Coatesville group to the Parade National Selection Committee, which selects finalists based upon video recordings, director interviews, past adjudication results, and overall quality, as well as geographical, ethnic, and stylistic diversity.

With the parade just three months away, fundraising efforts are in full swing, as the cost of travel, meals, modest lodging, and events for the approximately 100 marching band members heading to D.C. will be $75,000. Band members and their supporters in the Coatesville Parents Music Club (CPMC) will host a spaghetti dinner Saturday, April 29, at the Coatesville High School cafeteria and a vendor fair on Sunday, April 30, from 12 noon to 4:00 PM at East Fallowfield Community Park. The CPMC has also set up a GoFundMe page at: www.gofundme.com/MarchingRedRaiders.

“I am overjoyed to be able to share such a wonderful opportunity with these students,” said Mr. Gabriel Hughes, instrumental music director for the Coatesville Area Senior High School. “It is a great honor to have been the only marching band from Pennsylvania selected to march in the parade, and it’s a teacher’s dream to showcase students in such a positive light and provide them with lifelong memories.”

The annual National Independence Day Parade is the highlight of "A Capitol Fourth,” a three- day celebration held in our nation's capital, which for the Coatesville band will include not only marching in the Fourth of July parade down Constitution Avenue but also a guided tour of Washington, DC, including all the memorials and the Smithsonian Institute; a visit to Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to participate in a wreath laying ceremony; and attendance at a concert on the Capitol lawn featuring the National Symphony Orchestra.

    Red Raider march on DC

    July 2017


    The 2016 COATESVILLE RED RAIDER MARCHING BAND has been nominated to represent Pennsylvania in Washington DC at "A CAPITOL FOURTH" - America's Premiere Birthday Celebration which will commemorate America's 241st birthday and to march in the 2017 National Independence Day Parade on July 4th 2017 .

    "A CAPITOL FOURTH" - America's Premiere Birthday Celebration is a three day event held in our Nation's Capitol which for the Band will include not only marching in the National Independence Day Parade down Constitution Avenue but also a guided tour of Historic Washington DC including all the Memorials & the Smithsonian Institute Museum, a visit to Arlington National Cemetery & the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to participate in a special US Military National Wreath Laying Ceremony, attendance at a concert on the Capitol Lawn featuring the National Symphony Orchestra and of course, Fireworks !!

    It is a great honor for Coatesville Red Raider Marching Band to be nominated and given this awesome opportunity to bask in the National Spotlight... if only for one day. As always with opportunity comes responsibilty and this one brings with it a great financial undertaking for which we are asking for help from every man, woman & business who is reading this story about our incredible journey .

    Your generous donation will help each Coatesville Band Student cover the expense of transportation to and from Washington DC via Coach Bus, modest hotel accommodations for three nights, admission costs for the guided tours and meals for the participant.

    The Red Raider Marching Band has less than nine months to raise enough funds to send about 100 people, band students & chaperones, on this Adventure of a Lifetime!!!

    We need and greatly appreciate everyone's help.... pass the word!!

    Help spread the word!


    A Go Fund Me page was started to help the 2016 COATESVILLE MARCHING RED RAIDERS Band Students cover the expenses associated with this momentous event.
