A Legacy of Winning

The Nazareth community is the home to great champions and the Nazareth Area Blue Eagle Marching Band is in an elite class. Since the Blue Eagles embarked on their competitive field show journey in 1980, the band has amassed an impressive amount of victories, over 195. Most recently they took home the 2022 Cavalcade of Bands – Patriot Open Championship. They also won the 2021 Cavalcade of Bands – Yankee Open Championship and the 2019 Cavalcade of Bands – Patriot Open Championship.  They compete every weekend from September to November both locally and nationally. Under the direction of Nazareth High School Alumni Mr. Matthew Tanzos, the Nazareth Area Blue Eagle Marching Band is proud to continue their winning legacy. Whether they are supporting our football team or performing as a competitive group of their own, the band is proud to represent the Nazareth Area School District and the greater Nazareth community.
