Calling PCHS Band Alumni from 1932 through 1971…
To celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the PCHS Marching Band, the 2022-2023 Ad Journal edition, entitled “The Street Beat,” will feature the experiences and reflections of Band Alumni and showcase the history of the PCHS Marching Band from its start in 1932 under the direction of its founder, Mr. Paul Weckesser, up through 1971 under Captain Kenneth R. Force, who introduced the British military marching style that the Band continues to uphold today. We are looking for three (3) alumni under each director (Paul Weckesser, Clement Barton, Robert Renino, Mr. Thompson and Captain Ken Force) to share memories of their time in the Band. We want to include your written paragraph of memoirs in The Street Beat commemorative edition Ad Journal. If you are interested, please email us at PCHSBand.AdJournal@gmail.com.

OF HONOR, COMMITMENT AND TRADITION!
The Port Chester High School Marching Band is so much more than just curriculum.
Known as the “Pride of Port Chester”, this group performs a themed field show for the fall competitive season along with parades and other performances throughout the year. Composed of 3 main sections, the Hornline, The Percussion, and the Color Guard.
DEAR PORT CHESTER
Dear Port Chester High School Marching Band Community,
The Port Chester High School Marching Band and the PCHS Marching Band Association would like to thank the Port Chester and Rye Brook communities for generously contributing to this year's Marching Band's Booster Drive. Your donations will go a long way in helping to support our Fall and Winter programs. The dedicated members of the Pride of Port Chester are working extremely hard in hopes of repeating last year's Championship winning season. Competition season kicked off with the new "España" program at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, CT where they took 1st place in Group V / A Class! The band couldn't do it without the community support.
We continue to fundraise during the year. There is still time to donate to the booster drive and the Fruit Sale will be starting shortly. Check back here often to learn more.
