Help the Roxbury Band Make the March of a Lifetime
The Roxbury High School Band has been nominated by United States Congressman Tom Malinowski to be an official representative of the State of New Jersey in the 2020 National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, DC on May 25th, 2020! This event is the official Memorial Day parade of the United States and is nationally televised across the US and streamed to our Armed Forces worldwide. Congressman Malinowski recommended Roxbury based on our long-standing tradition of musical excellence.
This is an amazing opportunity to showcase our students and our community at a national level!
This trip will commence on Sunday, May 24th and will include a two-day, one-night stay in our nation’s capital, with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, an evening monument tour on the National Mall, a Smithsonian Museum visit and a performance by the National Symphony Orchestra on the US Capitol lawn. Then, on Monday, May 25th, Memorial Day, we will march in the National Memorial Day Parade down historic Constitution Avenue while representing our home community of Roxbury and New Jersey with the utmost of pride and dignity.
