Everything's coming up roses for Grenadier Band
Exciting news for The Liberty High School Grenadier Band: Just yesterday, band members learned that, from the hundreds of bands from around the world who applied, they have been selected to march in the January 1, 2014, PASADENA TOURNAMENT OF ROSES PARADE!
The Grenadiers were a smash hit back in 2009 at their first appearance at the Rose Parade. And they look forward to again representing Bethlehem and all of Pennsylvania in 2014, before a worldwide television audience of over half a BILLION viewers. Congratulations to the Liberty High School Grenadier Band on another amazing accomplishment!
Mr. Gary Leonard, Vice Chair of the Tournament of Roses Music Selection Committee, flew in from Pasadena, CA, and surprised our students/parents/fans with the news Saturday at the Freedom-Liberty game at the finale of our band's halftime performance. The LHSGB marched centerfield in parade formation, playing "I Love A Parade", as Mr. Leonard, Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan, PA Representative Steve Samuelson, BASD Superintendent Joseph Roy, and LHS Principal Harrison Bailey III, led the way, complete with a Bethlehem PD motorcycle escort, and an elevated 15' x 25' Tournament of Roses flag serving as a backdrop. Mr. Leonard's announcement was spontaneously greeted with a thunderous ovation and a salvo of fireworks.
