My name is Kyle Rogers and I am a senior attending First Assembly Christian School in Cordova, TN. I am an active leader in my school's band and have been perfecting my instrument, the trumpet, for six years. I have represented my school in All West Tennessee and All State Honor Bands four times and have competed in various competitions across the state. As a result, I have been invited to play in the Macy's Great American Marching Band during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This band is comprised of approximately 250 elite high school musicians from all 50 states and the opportunity is a once in a lifetime for me. As a senior, this would be my first and last chance to participate. I will be in NYC for six days attending rehearsal clinics, numerous leadership camps, and learning from experienced collegiate band directors and the end result is the privilege to march in the parade. I am honored to have been chosen from the many gifted musicians across the country!
My goal is to raise as much of the $2500 expense by working at my church and also from donations. I am determined to fulfill this goal and I would greatly appreciate your support! I hope you choose to participate in helping make this dream a reality!
