Hi! It’s me - Thomas!
So here I am in my Junior year at Heritage High School in Wake Forest, North Carolina and I have been given the incredible opportunity to participate in the prestigious Bands of America Honor Band at the 2017 Tournament of Roses® Parade in Pasadena, California on January 2, 2017.
I was fortunate to receive a late invitation to audition for the Honor Band due to my participation in the Western Carolina University Band Camp in July. The camp staff included several BOA Honor Band staff members including the Director Mr. Bob Buckner. He encouraged the camp participants to consider a late audition, so I got to work on my audition, submitted it, and four weeks later I received an acceptance letter to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The BOA Honor Band is a 300-piece ensemble with winds, percussion and color guard selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide. I will be spending a week in southern California preparing for the Rose Parade while touring the Los Angeles area.
I have worked hard for this by practicing and actively participating in my school’s band program...committing thousands of hours to making myself a stronger player, leader, and person.
As a member of this ensemble, I am responsible for raising the money necessary for my participation, and any help that you can give to get me closer to my goal is appreciated!
