Maggie’s Going to New York!
Maggie’s Going to
Republic junior Maggie Moncado has been invited to join Macy’s Great American Marching Band in the 92nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Coming from all fifty states, a total of 185 high school musicians, along with 40 color guard/dancers, are selected for this honor.
She will travel to New York the Saturday before Thanksgiving and spend the next several days training with others from around the country before marching in the parade on Thanksgiving Day. They will also have the opportunity to sightsee and take in a Broadway show.
As a sophomore, Maggie was first chair tenor saxophone in the symphonic (varsity) band as well as first chair in Jazz Band B. She took solos to the state competition her freshman and sophomore year, and was first alternate for district band her sophomore year. She is a member of the Republic Community Band, works part-time at Chick-fil-A on S. Glenstone, and plans to pursue a career in music as a high school band director.
Follow her journey in her Facebook group. Pictures will be posted from fundraisers and other events before culminating in exclusive content during the trip to New York – including (hopefully!) a Facebook live as the band marches past the where her mom is watching! Be sure to follow the Instagram page as well!
Fundraising opportunities can be found on the fundraising page.
