Na Koa Alii

Hawaii All State Marching Band 2014

 

The Hawaii All-State Marching Band (HASMB) - "NA KOA ALI’I" was formed in April 2002 as a special private performing organization. The group is opened to representative(s) from each public and private schools that has an instrumental/band music and performing arts program in the state of Hawaii; giving the participants opportunities and experiences that they would not otherwise have. The past performers came from the islands of O’ahu, Maui, Kaua’i, and the Island of Hawai’i.


Band directors and teachers are currently invited to select members from their schools to participate in this unique organization. Note:  Given that not all directors are aware of the opportunity to nominate, students are now also given the opportunity to self-nominate and apply.  Students who wish to self-nominate must provide recommendation by teacher or principal as part of their application submission and must be in good standing in their school programs.


The group will be making their third appearance at the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on January 1. 2014.  The past appearance was in 2009 and 2003.  The Na Koa Ali’i also had wow’ed audiences in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in 2005 and 2011.


The Managing Director is John Riggle, Director of Bands at Kamehameha Schools-Kapalama High School Campus. He was instrumental in the formation and organization of HASMB.
