Spirit of America Band is more than a precision marching, musical ensemble – it is a training ground for life, based on the values and characteristics that have made our country great from its very beginning.
From Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Spirit of America Band has toured both nationally and internationally, from its hometown in Orleans, to Australia and South Korea. Its members are volunteers, ranging in age from 9 to 60. The band leads workshops in music and marching, while imparting life and leadership skills to thousands of students of all levels and abilities. Spirit of America has competed in two WAMSB World Championships, winning first place in South Korea in 2006, and 1st runner up in Calgary, Canada in 2000. In addition, Spirit of America has been awarded countless prizes and awards over the last 30 years.
Teaching by example, Spirit of America encourages young people to stretch beyond their reach, and discover a whole new world of personal and corporate pride, gaining friendships and achievements along the way. Spirit of America considers it an immense reward to share their hearts and energy with every audience member and student they meet. But the greatest prize of all has been to hear from the individuals who encountered Spirit of America through workshops and performances in their youth, and whose lives have benefited from the life skills they learned from being in the band.
Spirit of America has an active program that gives young people the opportunity to join the band. If you or your young person is interested in joining Spirit of America Band or Winter Percussion, click here!
