The Chiawana High School Riverhawk Marching Band is in only its second year and is under the student direction of Annaliza Mariscal and William Eris. In their 2010 debut, the band received many positive accolades and awards. This year, their show entitled "Life Cycles: Work, Rest, Play" depicts the activities we all go through on a daily basis. It begins with the band rising from its slumber and entering the hustle and bustle of daily work life where intense activity and productivity occupy our minds. At the conclusion of the work day we take time to rest, spending time with family and clearing our mind of the stress and anxiety of work. Finally, the percussion section introduces the concept of play. Soon the whole band joins as we celebrate the fun times in life.

The Chiawana Marching Band is one component of a balanced music program that emphasizes character, integrity, teamwork, and achievement through involvement in marching, jazz, and concert bands.

We truly hope you enjoy the 2011 Chiawana High School Riverhawk Marching Band!

The marching band is recipient of numerous placing and caption awards from competitions around the Pacific Northwest. The band also won the visual caption award at the Bands of America Western Regional in 2009.
