The Sun Valley Marching Band competed at the 2018 Cavalcade of Bands Championships Sunday, November 11 competing against 13 high schools around the state including Haverford, Conestoga Valley, West Chester East and Chichester.   Our award winning band competed in the American Class based on band size (41 to 55 members).  Since 2012, the Marching Band has only one third place finish placing either first or second, including Championship wins in 2015 and 2016.  


The band program Black Swan cynched second place this year ranking for a second year just behind Whitehall High School by .45 points.  The band also won High Music and High Visual Awards as well.  After accepting their honors on the field in Allentown,  the band bus was welcomed back to Sun Valley by the Brookhaven fire department and the Aston, Brookhaven, and Parkside police departments with lights and sirens.  It was another amazing year for this talented group of musicians and their teacher Mr. Tim Pry.
