Drum roll, please!

For those of you who don’t know me, I am Marita Begley, and it is my great honor to serve as your artistic director for what will be our performance in the 2013 Inaugural Parade (if we’re selected by the Presidential Inaugural Committee). Let me say a HUGE thank you to everyone who applied for the leadership team positions. In my application, I told the LGBA board that I am a collaborator, and that I wanted to bring together as many people as possible from as many different bands as possible, give everyone a chance to contribute, and allow the LGBA massed band to benefit from our vast pool of talent. THAT part of my job you made incredibly easy! The LGBA artistic leadership team for the Inaugural Parade will include members from 13 different bands, coming together from 12 different states, to make magic and music and HISTORY!
