TROY — Troy High School senior Kane Feltner, who plays the tenor Saxophone, was selected as one of the newest members of the The U.S. Army All-American Marching Band during a selection ceremony Thursday at Troy High School Auditorium.
The U.S. Army All-American Marching Band has been a fixture at the U.S Army All-American Bowl since 2008. Selected by the National Association for Music Education in cooperation with All American Games and Drum Corps International, the band features the 125 top marching band members from across the United States. Students are nominated by their band director in the fall of their junior year, submit application materials in the spring of their junior year and are notified of acceptance by NAfME in late July. Members receive a selection tour stop at their school during the fall of their senior year and an all-expenses paid trip to bowl week during January of their senior year.
During bowl week, the band members receive instruction from top collegiate, high school and drum and bugle corps instructors from across the country as well as educational sessions with members of the U.S. Army Field Band.
