For the past 10 years, the Hanford Band has grown into one of the most celebrated music programs in the North West. Outstanding individual musicianship and excellent scores and ratings for ensembles are the product of student discipline, responsibility, and teaching that aspires excellence.


“I love to hear a choir. I love the humanity to see the faces of real people devoting themselves to a piece of music. I like the teamwork. It makes me feel optimistic about the human race when I see them cooperating like that.” ~Paul McCartney

Marching Band

At Hanford, we believe that the marching band is an organization that offers students educational value beyond what can be offered in the regular classroom. We focus on commitment, excellence, and camaraderie using music and the marching arts as the developing tools.
“A grounding in the arts will help our children to see; to bring a uniquely human perspective to science and technology. In short, it will help them as they grow smarter to also grow wiser.” - Robert E. Allen – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, AT&T Corporation
