The Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School is excited to announce that Emily Warren, our Grade Six through Eight music teacher will be participating in the Rose Parade as a member of Saluting America's Band Directors. Miss Warren applied for the program and was selected to participate in the marching band and will represent Massachusetts and will be playing the baritone.
This is a marching band made up of 275+ band directors from all 50 states, Canada and Mexico. It is the first time in Rose Parade history that a performing group is going to be both a float AND a marching band (all other groups have been either a float or a band) and it's the first marching band of its kind in history.
We are thrilled to see Miss Warren participating in this band which is a tribute to band directors across the country and will pay tribute to the exceptional instruction, character development and inspiration provided by music educators everywhere. We hope you will tune in to watch and cheer her on! The show will air on New Year's Day morning on ABC, NBC, Hallmark Channel, and Univision starting at 11 AM EST. Saluting America's Band Directors is expected to air in the second half of the parade (in other words, the second hour of the broadcast) and the group will be announced on TV before they perform.
