Emerald Brigade Spring Car Wash

Granite Bay High School’s Emerald Brigade Marching Band and Color Guard is having their annual spring car wash Saturday, April 30.  The event will run from 9 to 5 and will be held in the Tri Counties parking lot at the corner of Douglas and Sierra College in Granite Bay. Car wash tickets - $10 each - can be purchased from any band member, or can be purchased at the event.


The money raised from the car wash will help support the ongoing operating expenses of the Emerald Brigade, including instruments, instructors’ stipends, and parade and field show competition expenses.


The Emerald Brigade consists of an award-winning marching band and color guard, drum line, jazz band, and concert band.  Formed in 1996, the program has grown from an aspiring marching band, uniformed in matching polo shirts, to its current glory in full marching splendor.  Under the thoughtful direction of Lynn Kulikowski, the Emerald Brigade has just completed its most successful marching season yet, winning the coveted “Grand Sweepstakes Award” in five of the six competitions in which they participated this year in various locations throughout Northern California.


Additionally, the Emerald Brigade concert band has been uniquely honored with an invitation to perform at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. this coming Spring.


Through the generous support of our community the Emerald Brigade music program allows over 120 students the opportunity to receive an enriched musical education and to experience

personal success through hard-work, dedication and commitment.
