The Nogales Noble Regiment is the award-winning marching band of Nogales High School, located in La Puente, California and proudly directed by Bradley Pollock. The Noble Regiment has represented the State of California twice (and was the only band to represent the West Coast) at the famous New York Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2015 and 2008. The concert band has received unanimous superior ratings at their festivals and the drum line and color guard are consistent finalists in their receptive circuits including, but not limited to: The Western Band Association (WBA), the Southern California Schools Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA), and Bands of America (BOA). This is the first time the band will attend the London New Year’s Day Parade for 2019-20, where they will be one of four bands from California represented. Band and color guard students from across the Rowland Unified School District in grades 8 through 12 have the opportunity to join the Noble Regiment to perform in this once-in-a lifetime experience.
The London’s New Year’s Day Parade is more fondly known by Londoners as LNYDP. Running alongside the parade is the LNYDP concert series and the Grand Finale of the London International Choral Festival performed in internationally acclaimed music venues across the nation’s capital. LNYDP starts from Piccadilly, one of the capital’s most famous thoroughfares.
