Pearl City Hosts Band Fest
Pearl City High School’s Music Learning Center and Finance Factors have teamed up to host the 35th annual Oahu Marching Band Festival from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 1 at Aloha Stadium.
Eleven high school bands from across Oahu have been invited to perform, including those from Aiea, Kapolei and Pearl City.
Each band will perform an eight-to 10-minute routine for both spectators and a panel of experts, who will later share comments with the bands on ways to improve their performances for future events. Judges are Dr. Thomas Leslie, a professor at the University of Las Vegas Nevada; Ralph Ford, of Troy University; Michael Nakasone, former bandmaster of the Royal Hawaiian Band; UH band director Keith Higaki; and Erik Kreft and Bobby King.
“We are happy to extend a hand to this worthwhile educational opportunity which enriches Hawaii’s youth and allows each participating band to improve their program,” said Finance Factors president and COO Steven Teruya.
Tickets to the festival cost $7 for adults and $5 for students.
