Help LRCH Marching Band Make History at 57th Inaugural Parade in Washington, DC  

One hundred and three Little Rock Central High marching band members, under the direction of Mr. Brice Evans, will perform at the 57th Inaugural Parade on January 21, 2013 in Washington DC. Eighty-four groups, with a combined total of nearly 15,000 participants, were selected to perform. 

The marching band is actively doing fundraisers, seeking sponsors and donations to offset the estimated cost of more than $100,000 or $1000 per student. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor or making a donation should contact the band director by phone at 501-447-1478 or by email at

The application process included video and audio recordings of the band performing, a history of the band program, a list of achievements and honors, along with letters of endorsement from Governor Mike Beebe and Senator Mark Pryor.  Here is a direct link to the ARCF Give Online page with the Little Rock Central High School Band Fund pre-populated in the allocation line.  Donations are tax deductible.

 The 2013 Inaugural Ceremonies theme, "Faith in America's Future" commemorates the United States' perseverance and marks the 150th anniversary of the placement of the Statue of Freedom atop the U.S. Capitol dome. The parade is organized by the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region, and participants are selected by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
