Taking it to the Streets

The Roots of Music band has begun marching practice in preparation for the Mardi Gras season. The select members of the program who have spent months learning their parts are now taking it to the streets for the first time. Keep an eye out for official debut of the Roots of Music band at the Mardi Gras parades, starting with Pygmalion on Friday, February 13. We weren't able to purchase full uniforms for the band, but we have some special outfits on the way thanks to the support of the parents' booster club and an anonymous donor.

The 2009 Roots of Music Mardi Gras parade schedule:
Friday, Feb. 13 @ 7pm: Pygmalion
Sunday, Feb. 15 @ noon: Alla (Jefferson)
Thursday, Feb. 19 @ 6:15pm: Muses
Sunday, Feb. 22 @ 5:15pm: Bacchus
Monday, Feb. 23 @ 6pm: Orpheus
