Green Band Association

Dear Host Families and Friends of the Green Band,

We had hoped to have a Green Band come in late 2021 but due to the precautions in Japan for Covid, the St. Ursula Eichi Sendai Marching Band cancelled for the 2022 Rose Parade.  The Green Band was attempting to make arrangements for the Gifu Honor Green Band to take their place, but ultimately it was not successful. Thereby this cancellation applies to both bands. We had high hopes after the pandemic forced cancellation of last year’s Parade that things would have returned enough to normal that this would not be necessary.  It was an exceedingly difficult decision, but we saw no practical way forward, given the ongoing pandemic conditions in Japan. Hopefully, we will be able to return to normal conditions in 2023 and successfully present a marching band to participate in the Rose Parade.
