With 15 sousaphones standing on the top of the Quad steps â€“Â Horns, saxophones, drums, cymbals and flutes in between, and xylophones up front â€“ the PCC Marching Lancers played for the lunch crowd in the quad on Nov 6.
Along with the color guard performing to the side, the band rocked out to the 80s hit â€˜Take On Me,â€™ and sang along to their field show performance â€˜Les Miserables.â€™
As the football season is over, the marching band played in the Quad to display its talents, and as practice for its exhibition show at two high school tournaments, the Los Altos Field Tournament on Nov. 12, and the Moorpark Battle of the Bands on Nov. 17.
â€œWe are still getting the show finished to go to the exhibitions at the high school tournaments,â€ said Kyle Luck, director of bands.Â â€œThatâ€™s really a recruitment opportunity for us. We want those high school students to see us and go â€˜Wow I really want to go to PCC and be in that band.â€™ â€
As one of the very few community college marching bands in Southern California, PCC is an opportunity for students to join a marching band without going to a four-year college.Â SOURCE??
To round off this year, the PCC Marching Band is also the Tournament of Roses Honor Band, and has been performing in the Tournament of Roses since 1930.
