Stony Brook’s marching band hits the bigtime with Columbus Day Parade appearance
President Stanley, Richard T. Nasti to lead SBU contingent in televised event
Being invited to march in the historic parade shows just how far the band has come since its inception. From an initial group of 17 students in 2006, the organization today has about 150 members and includes a color guard and dance team.
The honor of being selected for the parade comes with a $20,000 scholarship gift sponsored by the Columbus Citizens Foundation, a cultural and philanthropic organization with a deep commitment to education. “We are excited to be participating in this prestigious parade, but, more importantly, the parade committee will be sponsoring a four-year scholarship for a Stony Brook student,” says Director John Leddy.
Leading the Stony Brook procession down Fifth Avenue will be Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, President of Stony Brook University, Richard T. Nasti (’78), a member of the Stony Brook Foundation Board of Trustees and Senior VP and CFO of H. J. Kalikow & Co., and Stony Brook’s mascot, Wolfie. The Spirit of Stony Brook consists of approximately 150 band members including a Dance Team and Color Guard. The Parade will be broadcast live from Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on WABC-TV from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST.
