Central High Band To Play Aboard USS Missouri

June 6, 2011

One hundred students from the Central High Mighty Bobcat Band will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii June 6-12. Students have raised money during the past several months to be able to make the end-of-year trip.

While in Honolulu, band members will visit the Arizona Memorial/Pearl Harbor and will perform patriotic songs along the pier of the USS Missouri. Following the performance, students and sponsors will visit the "surrender deck" where General MacArthur signed the treaty to end World War II. The group will enjoy an authentic luau and will hike to the summit of Diamond Head during their stay on the island of Oahu.
