FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Kanstul herald trumpets will lead the 121st Annual Tournament of Roses Parade this year down Colorado Blvd on January 1st, after first taking part in opening ceremonies featuring a US Navy jet fly-over, pyrotechnics and the introduction of Grand Marshal Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger. The herald trumpet players will then board a special float which will carry them as they escort Captain Sullenberger along the parade route. The float - sponsored by NAMM, the International Music Products Association - will lead the parade down Pasadena's famed Colorado Blvd.
The theme of this year's parade will be "2010: A Cut Above The Rest", and according to Kanstul sales manager Charles Hargett, the choice to use Kanstul instruments "couldn't be more appropriate".
For the occasion, the instrument selected by organizers (which includes NAMM, Farmers Insurance and Corporate Magic) is Kanstul's Model 1100 Bb Melody Herald Trumpet, identical to those used by the US Army Band in Washington, DC.
The Rose Parade will be broadcast on ABC, Hallmark Channel, HGTV, KTLA, NBC, RFD-TV, Travel Channel and Univision. The parade is also seen in more than 200 international territories and countries.
Kanstul Musical Instruments is located in Anaheim, California. More information can be found at Kanstul.com
