17th Annual Indoor Invitational
February 11, 2023

Welcome to the Penncrest Band’s 16th Annual Indoor Percussion, Color Guard, Dance and Twirlers Competition, and thanks to all of you for supporting the marching arts. Today’s event showcases many talented and hard working young people and their instructors who, through involvement in the activity, are constantly pushing the boundaries of creative, technical and artistic excellence. By supporting their efforts and their values, we become partners in ensuring that these and other arts programs continue to be “instrumental” in our academic institutions and in our communities. Music is a preparation for life.


I also want to thank the Penncrest Band Parents and band members for all their planning and support of our home show. Special thanks to our indoor percussion instructors and color guard instruction: Ms. Fields, Mr. John Paul Kuhar, Ms. Kinden, Mr. Hearn, Mr. Stephenraj, Ms. O'Leary, and Mr. Bill Kuhar for their expert and caring support. We hope you enjoy your visit to our school today, and if you need anything please ask anyone wearing the red Penncrest Band shirt. Best of luck to all the groups in competition today and in the future!

Welcome performers, parents, directors, staff, and any other supporters of the marching arts. Thank you for coming to the 16th Annual Penncrest Invitational Indoor Competition located here at Penncrest High School in Media, Pennsylvania. This year’s performing groups come from various schools across the tri-state region.


These performers put their blood, sweat, and tears into countless hours of rehearsal. They are committed to excellence not only to their performance but in the classrooms as well. We are honored to host this event where you will witness breathtaking performances from all participating units!


Music and the arts in general are supported and greatly valued here in the Rose Tree Media School District community by students, faculty, alumni and by the Penncrest and District administrations. As a current band staff member and colorguard coordinator, the immense support makes me extremely proud to be part of a legacy of excellence.



We hope you enjoy the day of pageantry featuring percussion ensembles, dance teams, twirlers and colorguards! We thank you for supporting our show, these amazing performers, and for supporting the music and arts programs in our schools. Enjoy and please feel free to clap loud and cheer on the performers!
