Make a contribution to the Saluting America's Band Directors project
Make history by supporting our Saluting America's Band Directors float and band of band directors for the 2022 Rose Parade® in honor of all band directors in the country! We need your help! We will salute the mentoring and inspiration of America's band directors with a spectacular animated float and marching band.
Our float is inspired by Pickerington Music Educator Michael Sewell and will salute all band directors who dare to dream big like Mike Sewell. Mike was a music educator in Ohio for 38+ years and took his Pickerington Tigers to the Rose Parade four times in his career! Mike represents every music educator who has left a thumbprint on students' lives. What better way to say thank you and bring attention to the importance of music in our lives than to salute all band directors on January 1, 2022 in the 133rd Rose Parade?
