Taking Part in the Indianapolis 500!

I didn’t actually enter the race this year, but I was able to score a new arrangement of “America the Beautiful” for Ronald Hawkins to sing with the Purdue All-American Marching Band for their appearance at the Brickyard this year. The Purdue band has played at the Indy 500 for 90 years (!) and I’m happy to have been arranging for this great band for the past 20 years. You can follow the band’s busy schedule at the band website. Be sure to check out the very cool 360 degree Panorama shot of the band playing on Race Day at Indy!
