OHS Invited to the 2017 Rose Parade
The OHS Band received an invitation to perform at the 128th Tournament of Roses Parade to be held on January 2, 2017 in Pasadena, California. The Rose Parade is one of the longest running, internationally televised events of its kind in the world. The 2015 Parade, for example, had a total viewership estimated at over 50 million people and about 700,000 in person. According to the Tournament of Roses site, “bands are selected by the Tournament of Roses based on a variety of criteria including musicianship, marching ability and entertainment or special interest value”. Ooltewah High School is very honored to be invited to such an event!
