Cavalcade of Bands
Education through musical involvement
|Scott Litzenberg - this year's inductee into the Cavalcade of Bands Hall of Fame|
A graduate of West Chester University with a Bachelor of Science degree in music education, Scott has been a high school band director for over 32 years. Starting with four years at Wilson HS, followed by 11 years at Upper Darby HS and currently in his 16th year as band director and music department chair at Unionville HS of Kennett Square, PA.
Throughout his career, his marching and jazz bands along with indoor units have continually participated and supported Cavalcade. In 2008 he became the president of Cavalcade, a position he holds to this day. During his tenure he has restructured and added to the administrative team, supported all administrators and coordinators and moved the association forward with technology. Primarily with the use of digital recorders for all judging areas, which was a first with any circuit in our region, and Competition Suite, a tabulation and digital file transfer cloud based service for marching arts activities.
As president he handles many director, staff and parent inquires and situations in a constantly calm and professional manner. Throughout it all, he has always had both his students and all the students of Cavalcade, at the forefront of his approach to the activity. This was most noticeable as he was the co-director, and musical leader of the 2015 Cavalcade Tournament of Roses Honor Band. Using all his teaching experiences, and mass resources and connections, he lead the way for a truly memorable experience for students, staff and parents on this once and a life time musical opportunity.
