Jason Rose, Band Director

No man can fully grasp how far and how fast we have come, but condense, if you will,
the 50,000 years of man¹s recorded history in a time span of but a half-century. Stated
in these terms, we know very little about the first 40 years, except at the end of them
advanced man had learned to use the skins of animals to cover them. Then about 10
years ago, under this standard, man emerged from his caves to construct other kinds of
shelter. Only five years ago man learned to write and use a cart with wheels.

Christianity began less than two years ago. The printing press came this year, and then
less than two months ago, during this whole 50-year span of human history, the steam
engine provided a new source of power. 
Newton explored the meaning of gravity. Last month electric lights and telephones and
automobiles and airplanes became available. Only last week did we develop penicillin
and television and nuclear power.

This is a breathtaking pace, and such a pace cannot help but create new ills as it
dispels old, new ignorance, new problems, new dangers. Surely the opening vistas of
space promise high costs and hardships, as well as high reward.

A celebration of the American desire to break down frontiers wherever we encounter
them, and our Richland home as a landmark of scientific and engineering endeavor, the
Richland High School Marching Band presents their show for 2017: The Race.

The space race is recognized as exploration that defined a generation. Trusting that it
could be done, but not sure how to do it, American society came together with the
singular purpose of putting a man o the moon and safely returning him home. These
days we marvel at the challenges others overcame, elevating people of humble
backgrounds to become people we revere.

What are the new challenges we are to face? How will we conquer them? An important
lesson to learn from the Space Race is that ordinary people have extraordinary

The Race is presented by Drum Majors Conner Adcock and Adriana Bonner.

Show Title:
KAIROS – When Eternity Steps into Time

Show Description:
Time is elusive to mere mortal men. We have measured it since ancient time with the sun and the seasons, and as our minds developed so did our timepieces.
Unlike Chronos – regular, measurable, chronological time – Kairos is a period of undetermined time, an opportune and decisive moment when conditions are right for the accomplishment of a crucial action. A watershed moment that affects every aspect, forever more, of the person’s life that is defined by quality rather than quantity. It’s the experien

Show Title:  
·       Streets of New York
·       Broken Road
·       Groove Highway
·       Sesame Street State of Mind
 Show Description:  
The theme for Hanford High Schools 2017 marching band show is titled “STREET BEATS,” concept created by Chris Newbury. Watch carefully as graffiti comes to life to the sounds of the city, highlighted by the amazing talent of our trombone soloist, Elijah Hyatt in “Streets of New York.”  We thought a little inspiration taken from our muse, the great choreographer “Bob Fosse,” would add a little extra pizazz.  From the streets of NYC we traverse the broken road through the “heartland,” followed by an original tune from the pen of Chris Newbury (Groove Highway) taking us full pedal-to-the-metal into the classic theme Sesame Street. The HHS 2017 show STREET BEATS should be entertaining and fun for everyone!  
 Musical Selections:  Streets of New York by Alicia Keys, God Bless the Broken Road by Marcus Hummon, Bobby Boyd and Jeff Hanna, Sesame Street by Joe Raposo, Jeff Moss, and Christopher Cerf.

This year’s show is titled, “As You Are.” The CV Marching Band's 2017 program puts our students in the role of puppets, cutting the strings of conformity and celebrating their own voice. Accepting yourself as you are: the freak, the geek, the shy one, the crazy one or the little bit of everything one. Using the music of the band, Nirvana our focus this year is on your story. Who are you? How do you conform, how do you wish to be free of those strings, and in the end who or what will you become?
