From Harrisburg, North Carolina and representing Cabarrus County Schools, the Hickory Ridge Blur Regiment is honoured to be a part of the Rome New Year Parade & Festival 2020. In addition to the marching band, the comprehensive program also supports two concert ensembles, a jazz ensemble, a pit orchestra for our musicals, and several chamber ensembles. Each ensemble consistently earns superior ratings at festivals and competitions in our region.
Hickory Ridge opened in the fall of 2007 and has made student travel a cornerstone of the music program. In twelve short years, the various ensembles have twice performed in London’s New Year’s Day Parade (2009 & 2016), Shanghai, Beijing, Shaoxin, Washington D.C., New York, Orlando and New Orleans.
