Home Newsroom #365Barrington2 | Barrington High School Band Marches in London’s New Year’s Day Parade

Barrington High School’s marching band started the new year with a bang across the pond, performing, for a second time, in London’s New Year’s Day Parade!

The Broncos first appeared in the 2014 parade and were invited back for a rare encore performance. The BHS band is one of just 16 bands from across the U.S. that marched in London’s 2018 parade.

The London New Year’s Day Parade is a long-running tradition that demands high standards of excellence from all participants. City Councillor and former Lord Mayor of Westminster Robert Davis traveled to Barrington over a year ago to meet with BHS Band Director Randy Karon, District 220 Director of Fine, Visual & Performing Arts Brigid Tileston and BHS Principal Steve McWilliams, to personally invite the band to return for the 2018 parade. In addition to the parade, the BHS Concert and Symphonic Band members will perform at a St. John’s Hall gala on January 2.

BHS Band Director Randy Karon says it’s an honor to be invited back. “We have played in many great venues, such as the Thanksgiving Parade of Bands at Walt Disney World and at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The parade and the gala provide unique opportunities for these musicians to perform at another level and to a global audience.”
