About the Program: The Ramona High School Dynasty Band and Color Guard is a key component of the instrumental music program and Riverside Arts Magnet program at Ramona High School. The instrumental music program is proud to include the Dynasty Marching Band, 2 full concert bands, string orchestra, jazz ensemble, 2 winter percussion ensembles, color guard and the newest addition to the program, Mariachi dinastía de Ramona. Ramona High School is a Title 1 school in southern California. 82% of our students are on the free/reduced lunch program. This has never stopped our music program from striving to provide the best experience for our students. We pride ourselves on a program that provides unique opportunities in music unmatched by any classroom experience offered.
The Ramona High School Dynasty has been nationally recognized for their excellence in performance and has appeared in the 2004 Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade, the 2006 New Year’s Day Parade in Paris, France, the 2014 Hollywood Christmas Parade and the 2017 Hawaii Music Festival. In March 2019 the Ramona High School Wind Ensemble performed at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in New York City as part of the “Sounds of Spring” Music Festival. In 2016 and 2018, the Ramona Dynasty was awarded the Varsity Brands “Spirit of Sound” Pep Band Award and they are nominated for the same award in 2019. 2017 they were the recipients of the Give A Note Foundation Music in our Schools Tour Grant and the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation Grant.
