Tyler ISD:

TYLER (KYTX) – The John Tyler High School Big Blue Band will perform their first march-a-thon event on Saturday, August 24 by sharing their award-winning music with the community. The band will march through streets, stopping at certain homes to perform lawn concerts. The event will kick-off fundraising efforts to finance the band's trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, California to perform.

There are four different parade routes. The first leg will be in the Pine Brook addition behind John Tyler High School. The second leg will travel down Cecil, Northridge, and 29th streets ending at Dogan Middle School. The third leg will travel through the Normandy Heights addition, and the fourth leg will route through Briarwood Estates. The march-a-thon will culminate with a performance at Stewart Middle School.

Donations to the Big Blue Band March-A-Thon can be brought to one of the parade routes, mailed to 1120 NNW Loop 323 Tyler, TX 75702, delivered in person to the John Tyler Band Hall, or arrangements can be made for a band director to pick them up. Please make checks payable to JT Band Parent Organization. Donations of $75.00 will receive a lawn performance and $50 donations will receive a one-song performance.
