Ayanna Winter Guard: About Page

Ayanna Logo

Ayanna Winter Guard from Pasadena City College was founded by staff and members of the Lancer Color Guard.  After several seasons of contemplating the idea of a winter guard, the idea became a work in progress.  Several months of planning and organizing went into building a strong foundation for the group. 

Ayanna offers members of the Lancer Color Guard the opportunity to continue performing after the fall Lancer Band and Tournament of Roses Honor Band season are over.  The group held auditions for any students between the ages of 18 and 22 who were interested in performing but were not yet involved with the Lancer Color Guard.  After several clinics and final auditions, the group was formed of 17 performers.  The membership consists mainly of current full-time Pasadena City College students as well as students from other surroudning colleges. 

In its debut season, Ayanna will be competing at several WGASC hosted shows and making appearances at the WGI Riverside and San Diego regionals.  Ayanna will end its season at the WGASC Championships competition in April. 

Ayanna Winter Guard plans to make the trip to WGI World Championships in the very near future.
