This historical section contains information, documents, schools, scores and much more on the history of Cavalcade of Bands since 1959. It has been gathered, sorted and presented from several sources as accurately as possible, knowing it’s missing information and is not perfect.
All shows, schools, placements and scores are presented as accurately as possible. For missing information (schools, shows, scores, etc.), after considerable research, none was available. If anyone has any information to add to these documents, we welcome it at any time.
We sincerely thank Jon Armstrong, from the New York State Field Band Association and Paul Smith, Cavalcade of Bands Executive Director, for their tireless efforts to obtain and present this history. In addition, we thank the following group for their memorabilia contributions to this effort: Mitch Adams, Cary Crumling, Linda Ferraro, Keith Gromis, Hatboro Horsham HS, Dick Karschner, Scott Loose, Bill Powers, Sue Smith and Ed Stimson. Thank you all!
If you have any information, files, documents or any other Cavalcade of Bands memorabilia which you would like to contribute to this effort, please contact Paul Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
