Letter Of Invitation Letter Of Invitation Music Festivals & Tours

logo2017 will mark the 91st Anniversary of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the 12th Anniversary of the Macy's Great American Marching Band.  Our organization takes great pride in our band program, which for decades has been a creative cornerstone of what has become America's most famous parade.  Macy's Parade is legendary for its rigid standards and its highly competitive selection process.  Our traditions are deeply rooted, especially in the area of regional diversity, but for our 80th parade anniversary, we broke the mold and took the idea of regional representation to a whole new level.

Under the leadership of the distinguished Dr. Richard Good of Auburn University and assisted by several outstanding music educators from all over the country, and with the partnership of MUSIC FESTIVALS & TOURS, twelve years ago we created a whole new kind of ensemble - an exciting Great American Marching Band showcasing the most talented high school student musicians from every state of the union.  On behalf of Richard, the music staff, the MUSIC FESTIVALS & TOURS staff, and everyone from Macy's Band Committee, I invite you to participate in this 12th annual "national band" that will represent the best high school students America has to offer in the 2017 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
