Send LMHS Band to Peach Bowl

Posted on Friday, April 13, 2018 at 10:33 am

The Lake Minneola High School Marching Green and Gold has been invited to perform in the 2018 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Festival in Atlanta, GA! This will be the band’s first trip out of state. The Festival includes a marching, concert, and jazz competition, as well as a parade through downtown Atlanta. They will join marching bands from across the country in the PreGame show and performing the National Anthem of this major college bowl game.
An invitation to perform at the Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl is an honor extended to only for the most talented student performers from across the nation. The Lake Minneola High School Marching Band was selected for this honor after having been recognized for their many accolades, including FMBC State Finalists the last 2 years. These accomplishments are a testament to the fine students and director’s efforts.
Under the direction of Andy Deen, the Marching Green and Gold will travel to Atlanta, Georgia where they will rehearse with the mass band and learn from nationally acclaimed adjudicators and march in the parade in downtown Atlanta. In their free time, they will enjoy the sights of Atlanta.
We need to raise $15,000 to help offset the cost of transportation to Atlanta for three or four nights. We anticipate needing two or three charter buses and one or two Uhauls.
