It with great excitement I am sharing information I found in the local Tampa Bay News and Lifestyles magazine that 7 members of the Tarpon Springs High School Colorguard have been chosen to perform in the 2016 Macy’s Great American Marching Band during the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Only a handful of students were selected from over 14,000 schools across the US to be members of the Great American Marching Band. The Colorguard adds extra drama to band performances by dancing, twirling flags, sabers, rifles, batons and an sometimes other props.
Tarpon Springs High Marching Band has a strong reputation in the local and state world of band competitions. The band also had the privilege of marching in the parade in 2014.
As a former band mom (from Sunlake High School) and a former TSHS alumni (yes, I realize it was a long time ago) you can bet I will be watching. If you love the parade or just want to see some local talent on the national stage I hope you take a moment to watch too!
