Avon, IN —On behalf of Hendricks Power Cooperative and its members, $3,200 was donated to the Brownsburg High School Marching Band, “The Sound of Brownsburg,” to support its upcoming participation in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade held in New York City. 

The Sound of Brownsburg was one of the nine bands selected to perform out of hundreds of entries from across the country. A group of more than 200 students along with faculty members, Chris Kaflik, performing arts and band teacher, and Tracy Runyon, band director, will travel to the Big Apple this fall to participate in the 95th annual parade. 

The band was originally invited to perform in the 2020 parade and has been anticipating this opportunity for over two years after the event was canceled last year due to the pandemic. 

“We are excited for the students to have this once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Dana Cochran, Director of Marketing and Member Engagement at Hendricks Power, “After the challenges they faced in 2020, we are proud to support them and see them represent our area on a national stage.”

The Sound of Brownsburg’s performance at the parade will air on Thursday, November 25th, 2021 at 9 am on NBC.
