A Tamaqua Area High School Band member has been selected for the 2010 Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade to be held in New York City.

The participating member of the 'Raider' Band is senior Steven Christ.

Steven will participate in a week long stay in New York City filled with required rehearsals which will culminate in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade down Broadway and a performance on nationwide television stopping in front of the famous New York Macy's Department Store in downtown Manhattan.

Students will participate in many cultural and social opportunities throughout the course of the week including dinners at many New York City eateries and shows at such venues as Radio City Music Hall where they will see the annual Christmas show featuring the Rockettes.

This is Steven's second appearance with the Macy's Band. He plays tenor saxophone.
