The PUSD All-Star Band recently looked and sounded like superstars on the red carpet at the Hollywood Christmas Parade.
The band thrilled the crowd with a combination of fanfare, jazz and pop pieces, while adding creative, show-style movement.
“We are so proud of our incredible All-Star Band!” said Karen Anderson, PUSD Arts & Enrichment coordinator and GATE specialist. “They brought it to the professional stage last night and wowed the world with their musicianship, dancing and pageantry.”
The parade, which is currently celebrating its 90th anniversary, also featured celebrities, dazzling equestrians, larger-than-life character balloons and colorful floats.
