Four Holy Cross students were selected to be members of the 325-piece Bands of America Honor Band that will perform Jan. 1 in the Tournament of Roses Parade in California.
They are Donny Arseneaux, trumpet; Perry Forstall, tuba; and Austin Lasseigne and Michael Voss, French horn and mellophone.
The foursome will be in Pasadena, Calif., for a week prior to the parade to rehearse, perform at the Tournament of Roses Bandfest and at Disneyland, and participate in other special activities.
The parade will be televised Jan. 1 at 10 a.m. (CST) on ABC, NBC, the Hallmark Channel, HGTV and Univision.
“To be selected for this unique opportunity is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these students and a testimony to their excellence and achievements,” Eric Martin, Music for All President and CEO.
