Joe Mason, the massed band organizer of the Chick-fil-a Bowl, extended an invitation to Mr. Carr for our band students to participate in this year’s bowl game. According to Mr. Mason another band from out of state had unfortunate circumstances and is not able to attend the game, so in search of a replacement he reached out to our band program because he has heard great things about our students. With the blessing of Dr. Albertus and the executive board of the boosters, Mr. Carr accepted the invitation after double checking with students that we would have enough participants to have a great showing. Although this is not a required event we do need as many students to participate as possible to allow for us to represent our band program professionally. Currently, about 90% of students have mentioned to Mr. Carr that they would participate. It is going to be a great experience for all of our students and allow them the opportunity to perform a parade through downtown Atlanta and perform in front of a sold out Georgia Dome crowd.
