2019 Marching Band Update

What’s New in the World of Marching Band

The Grove City Christian Marching Eagles have had a very busy start to the 2019 season! In July, High Schoolers welcomed Mr. Phil Claassen to the Eagle family. Mr. Claassen adapted quickly throughout his transition and is doing a great job leading our Marching Band.

From band camp, to rehearsals, to the first football game, our marchers have thrived in every way! They worked tirelessly throughout the summer to learn the show and improve their marching abilities. Their show this year, entitled “Danzón”, is inspired by the traditional dance style from Cuba.  It encompasses three movements, entitled, “passion”, “grace”, and “fire”.

Movement 1, “passion.”
