CATHERINE MARINO PERFORMS WITH THE “MACY’S GREAT AMERICAN MARCHING BAND” IN THE NYC THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE!
Junior Saxophonist, Catherine Marino, performed with Macy’s Great American Marching Band in the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Catherine auditioned earlier this year after Mr. Fabrizio shared information about the program with the Band classes. She joined 184 musicians and 40 color guard and dancers representing each State in the US.
The Band enjoyed a full week of rehearsals and touring in NYC (a first for many who have never been to New York). The week culminated in a 2:30am report time on Thanksgiving morning – in full uniform – for a 4:30am dress rehearsal at Herald Square in front of the flagship Macy’s store. And then the 9am step-off down Central Park West towards 6th Avenue. Congratulations Catherine!
