Whittier Union will celebrate student musical and dance performances at its 2017 Whittier Union High School District Band, Color Guard and Pepster Jamboree, otherwise known as BandJam, an annual community event that features the District’s five comprehensive high school marching bands, cheer squads and drill teams.
BandJam – which marks the end of the band and color guard field show season – will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 6 at the Sandra Sanchez Thorstenson Stadium at California High School, 9800 Mills Ave., Whittier.
It will include performances from the schools’ cheer and song squads as well as performances from the California High School Condor Entertainment Unit, La Serna High School Lancer Regiment, Pioneer High School Titan Regiment, Santa Fe High School Chieftain Tribe and the Whittier High School Cardinal Brigade.
Pioneer High School’s award-winning drill team will perform following the band. The evening will conclude with a parade featuring students from all bands and a mass band rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
The Jamboree provides schools the opportunity to raise funds for their respective music and cheer programs. General admission tickets are $8 and tickets for students with ID are $5. Children under age 5 are free. For information, call (562) 698-8121, ext. 4077.
