Followup: West Seattle High School Marching Band in Victoria Day Parade

May 19, 2014 at 4:44 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle schools | 2 Comments

A busy three days north of the border for West Seattle High School Marching Band musicians and director Ethan Thomas, marching this morning in the Victoria Day Parade in Victoria, B.C. Thanks again to Steve White for the photos (including this Saturday update after the band arrived), then the top photo from today’s parade, and below, their participation in the “Parade of Bands” outside the Parliament Building in Victoria.

The Victoria Day holiday is a celebration of not only Queen Victoria but also the Commonwealth’s reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth, as explained here.

  1. Oh great news to see this is back in the schedule of events for the marching band. Fond memories 36 years ago this very weekend I met my wife (of 34 years) and love of my life. We often talk of what a great time we had.
    Donn Weaver (of the West Seattle big band) was music director at the time at WSHS.

    Great times!!!

  2. Well I’ll be! The look like a Marching Band!

    Sincere thanks both to Mr. Thomas and to Principal Medsker for making the revival of the Music Program a top priority.
