2016-17 was a very successful year for the Manor High School Band. And the pace will continue into 2018.
The MHS band was officially invited to perform at the 24th Annual Martin Luther King Grande Parade in Houston, TX. Not only will the band participate in one of the biggest parades in Texas, but they will be prominently slotted in the parade's Honors Section, and will be one of the lead elements in the parade.
"My bands have marched in this parade many years, and I know the CEO," said Renferd Joseph, Manor ISD Director of Fine Arts. "He wanted to get Manor on the map and saw the potential in our band. He wanted them to be a part of next year's event."
This is the second parade that MHS has been invited to perform in recently. Last November, the group participated in the Chuy's Children Giving to Children Parade in Downtown Austin after participating in four contests during the fall season.
The parade will be held Saturday, January 13, 2018 and Monday, January 15, 2018 beginning at 10 am.
