ABOUT THE NORTHWESTERN TIGER PRIDE
The Northwestern High School Band has a long tradition of performance excellence, dating back to the consolidation into Northwestern High School in 1948. Originally known as the "Purple Pride Show Band," the TIGER PRIDE now competes throughout the Indiana State School Music Association circuits at Concert Band, Marching Band, and Jazz Band events.
The TIGER PRIDE is a five-time ISSMA Marching Band State Finalist, and has won many other awards and recognitions as a result of their performances. The TIGER PRIDE has performed multiple times in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and in 2017, was selected to represent ISSMA in the Indianapolis 500 Festival Parade, the 3rd most-viewed parade in the United States.
In 2017, 2018, & 2019, Northwestern earned ISSMA's prestigious All-Music Award for the Total Music Department. Northwestern was one of only 14 Indiana high schools to receive the All-Music Award for the Total Music Department in 2019.
In 2017, the Northwestern Winterguard finished their season as State Runners-Up in their competitive division in IHSCGA. In 2018, the Winterguard moved up a competitive class and finished 9th in IHSCGA State Finals.
