Newark Charter High School, located in Newark, Delaware (USA), provides extensive music and performing arts experiences for its students. The music programme includes various choirs, an orchestra, two full concert band ensembles, a steel drum band, and a marching band for grades 9-12. Almost half the student body of Newark Charter High School participates in a music programme group. Over the years, the Patriot Pride Band has received numerous awards for musicianship and character. Students involved in the band programme perform in semi-annual concerts and competitions, as well as local community and school-sponsored events. Performance highlights include Disney World in Orlando, Florida, USA in 2017 and most recently the London New Year’s Day parade and concert series in 2019. After the COVID pandemic limited their in-person performances for nearly two years, the Newark Charter High School Concert Band is proud and excited to be a part of the Rome New Year’s Day celebrations!
