Welcome to the Marietta Band Association
The Marietta Band Association (MBA) provides volunteers, funding, and administrative help in support of Marietta City School's ever-expanding band program. Backed by enthusiastic band parents, business sponsors, and school district representatives, the goal of the MBA is to make sure our students have what they need to experience a rewarding band career: both musically and socially. From frying up funnel cakes at the stadium on Friday nights to stacking music stands after a concert, the MBA is here to provide whatever help is needed.We rely on generous donations and fundraisers to provide capital for uniforms, trips, transportation to events, supplemental instructors, instruments for economically-disadvantaged students, sheet music, and more. You can show your support by submitting a tax-deductible donation!
Marching Band 2014-15
Our show this season pays homage to our favorite Oscar-winning films and their musical themes. We span decades of brilliant film scores including selections from the Sound of Music, Driving Miss Daisy, Slumdog Millionaire, and Schindler's List. Timeless and Instantly recognizable, these themes showcase the very best in motion picture music composition.
The MHS color guard sets the tone posing as the famous Oscar statuette, leading the band in a vocal response to "Do Re Mi". We then move into selections from Driving Miss Daisy before slowing down for the ballad feature, the theme from Schindler's List. "Jai Ho" shakes things up a bit, and leads us to the closer and some of our most "Favorite Things."
We're certain these tunes will bring to mind your experience with these exceptional films. And if you've missed any of our featured "Best Pictures," get on Netflix this weekend or go find the DVDs as soon as possible!
We hope to see you at one of our performances or competitions this season. Enjoy the show!
