OCSD Music Teacher to Perform in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

As millions of people tune into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade from the comfort of their homes, one Oswego City School District music teacher will be there in person to perform.
Kim Miller, a band director at Leighton Elementary and Kingsford Park Elementary, will be joining a group of 400 band directors from across the country called Saluting America’s Band Directors. This group will march and perform throughout the parade. The event, which is organized by the Saluting America’s Band Directors Project, aims to showcase the dedication and achievements of band directors nationwide using the theme "America’s band directors: We teach music. We teach life." Miller, along with her colleagues, will represent the profound impact that music educators have in guiding their students and teaching life lessons through the use of music.
“My goal every day is to teach my students lessons through music that go beyond the notes on the page, and that perseverance can take them further than they can imagine,” said Miller. “I am so excited to share with them the results of hard work when they watch this incredible group on the national stage!”
Tune in to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, Nov. 23, to watch Miller perform and represent Oswego at the national level.
