It looks like Pittsburg High’s Marching Show Band is taking its show on the road – again.
The award-winning group was recently – and officially – invited to participate in a New Year’s Day Parade by the city of Rome.
“We are thrilled the band – second to none – is participating in this prestigious event,” Principal Todd Whitmire said. “This opportunity comes at a great time for our students and community.”
He added that “our wonderful band director” Jennifer Martinez-Narez will lead a contingent of more than 100 students, parents and community members to Italy.
“Our school and community are extremely proud of our students and their commitment to our band program.”
Delegates from Rome visited the PHS campus to formally ask the band to join the parade and perform in the New Year’s Festival Concert Series. Dates are set for Dec. 28 through Jan. 3, 2018.
HELPING THE CAUSE: Antioch High hosts From Panther Country to Texas, a donation drive for hurricane victims.
The school’s Interact and Key clubs have joined forces to collect socks, underwear and toiletries — all items being requested by key organizers in Houston and surrounding areas. Deer Valley High’s Interact is also helping collect the much-needed items. If you’d like to donate, drop off new items (of all sizes and for all ages) in the barrel inside the Antioch High main office, 700 W. 18th St., or at Lone Tree Golf and Event Center, 4800 Golf Course Road.
Donations will be accepted through Sept. 25. For more info, call 925-779-7550.
