Rose Bowl Parade Accepts Colony High Marching Band for 2014!

The Colony High School Marching Band under the direction of Jamin Burton is going to the Rose Bowl Parade and competition in 2014. Colony High is in the Mat-Su Borough School District, the second largest school district in Alaska, with approximately 17,000 students at 45 sites. Beginning in 2011, Mr. Burton put together the application for CHS Marching Band to the Tournament of Roses Parade officials, including a letter of support from Superintendent Dr. Deena M. Paramo. “Directed by Mr. Jamin Burton, Colony High School Marching Band will provide a dose of geographic diversity for the Rose Bowl Parade,” she said. “In addition to its musicianship and stellar marching ability, I know you will find the Colony High Marching Band to be unique and entertaining,” she told the parade officials. “The band includes an award-winning drum line, and two members were selected from last year’s band to march in the 2011 Macy’s Great American Marching Band in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.” Other accomplishments by the band include marching in the 2010 Sugar Bowl Parade in New Orleans, the 2009 Presidential Inaugural Parade, and the 2006 National Independence Day Parade in Washington, D.C. Mr. Burton said, “Being accepted by the Rose Bowl is a goal that the band has been working toward for the last eight years. We are honored and excited to represent Colony, the Mat-Su Borough School District, and the state of Alaska in this honored tradition.”
