The marching band, known as The Pride of Shaker Heights, will travel to Italy in the spring of 2019 for their tri-annual international performance trip.

The location of each band trip is decided by three committees. The first comprises band members who are nominated by their peers, the second comprises parents who are band booster officers, nominated by the directors, and the third comprises band directors, the high school principal and other administrators. The input of the first two committees is passed onto the third, which makes the final decision.

When asked about the value of international travel, Band Director Daniel Crain said, “Music is a universal language. You don’t have to speak a word of the language. You can play music, and there’s an instant connection.”
