The band's director, Lynn Kulikowski, sent an audition cd last year. The Emerald Brigade was one of six bands selected. Three other high schools and two colleges, including Stockton's Delta College, will be there as well. The 104 Granite Bay bandmembers will be accompanied by 95 parents and friends.
The Brigade will have several opportunities to perform while staying in New York City, culminating in the New York Wind Band Festival at Carnegie Hall on Wed., March 28.
