At 8:45am on Friday, February 17, 2015, the Legend Titan Marching Band hosted “A London Celebration” in the Legend High School auditorium. Speakers and special guests at this event included:

• Orlando Otis – Director of Bands/Performing Arts Department Chair
• Jason Jacob – Legend High School Principal
• Mike Waid – Town of Parker Mayor
• Joshua Rivero – Town of Parker Council member
• Local News Media Representatives
• Duncan Sandys – Former “Lord Mayor” of the City of Westminster, and a Senior Patron of the London New Year’s Day Parade
• Robert Bone – Executive Director of the London New Year’s Day Parade
• Jonathan Whaley – Director of International Participation of the London New Year’s Day Parade

There was definitely reason for the band students to celebrate as they received an “official” invitation from the Lord Mayor to participate in the 30th Annual 2016 London New Year’s Day Parade and Festival. To add to the excitement of the event, gifts were exchanged between Legend High School and the Lord Mayor and guests in attendance were treated to performances by the award winning Legend Jazz Band and the spirited Legend Pep Band. The countdown to London has officially begun! For more information about the London New Year’s Day Parade, please visit the parade website: www.lnydp.com and “like” them on facebook!
