Looking for Host Families for Japan Marching Band performing at 2023 Rose Parade
Please see information below:
This is Tomoya. Hope all is well with you.
I’m contacting you today not as a reporter.
I’m good friends with the director of Green Band Japan, a group that sends a top high school (and sometimes college and alumni) marching band from Japan to the annual Rose Parade. Aside from LAUSD and Pasadena City College, they are the only student marching band that participates in the Rose Parade every year.
They were unable to take part during the pandemic, but they will be returning this New Year.
As part of their stay in Southern California, Green Band students will take part in a home-stay program where they get to experience American life. But the band is having difficulty securing enough host families to accommodate this year’s whopping 190 students. Many of the existing host families are those with kids who play music.
Attached is the flyer for the program. Tentative schedule for the home-stay is Dec. 30-Jan. 1.
Click here for the link to the home stay application.
Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions. I think IUSD makes a great match with Green Band considering how international and music-oriened the district is. Here are some videos of the band from recent years for your reference:
2018 Rose Parade
2019 Rose Parade
2020 Rose Parade
2020 Benefit concert after the parade
