The fifty-seventh installment of a new series on the blog that we will be posting throughout the month of December. As some of you are aware, Music for All will be taking an Honor Band to the 2017 Rose Parade. Our members were selected by audition for the ensemble and come from all across the United States. We are looking forward to coming together for the first time as a band at the end of December and we hope this series will allow us all to get to know some (hopefully most!) of the members of this awesome ensemble!
Name: Trevor Crawford

What made you decide to apply to be a part of the band?
I saw a poster in the band hall, but dismissed the idea at the time. Then, while at Music for All’s Summer Symposium, a staff member recommended that I audition. Once I got home I decided that I might as well give it a shot!
