Bigfork High sax player to perform in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

“It’s a really big deal to my mom — She’s been watching Macy’s since she was little and she’s so excited for me to be going. I’m really glad to make her happy,” Mueller said. “Plus it’s Macy’s — who doesn’t want to play in Macy’s?”

Mueller has been playing the alto sax since the fifth grade and is headed to New York with nearly four years of high school marching band experience under her belt. She said the whole experience hasn’t felt real until this week, when her flight and hotel reservations were confirmed. She will travel to the Big Apple on Saturday, accompanied by her mom, and spend seven days in the city. In addition to her performance in the parade Nov. 28, Mueller said she’s also planning to sightsee and catch a Broadway show.

On Thanksgiving Day, Mueller said she and the other performers will get up at 1 a.m. for practice, followed by breakfast at the Hard Rock Cafe at 5:30 a.m., and will then make their final preparations for the parade, which kicks off at 9 a.m. During the parade, Mueller and the band will be joined by 40 flagsters and dancers while they play the iconic melodies, “Carols on Parade” and “Joy to the World.”

“I know that I’m just one person in the band, but I still feel really important, at least important in Bigfork. It’s just fun that everybody knows and everybody is excited for me,” she said. “I’m just hoping I come back changed. I know it’s not going to be drastic, but I think this is where I’m going to decide where I want to go with music.” »
