Posted: Updated:

The West Point Band's Academy Brass Quintet is composed of active duty Soldier musicians of the West Point Band, who march in the parade up 5th Avenue.

The West Point Band has marched in the NYC parade, now called "America's Parade", since 1929 and lead the parade along with members of the Corps of Cadets of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.  An estimated 25,000 march in parade.  Nearly 1 million people line parade route.

The band also provided music for the Eternal Light Monument in Madison Square Park (5th Avenue at 24th Street, next to Madison Square Park). This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Eternal Light Monument wreath-laying ceremony and statue.

The parade travels up Fifth Avenue, from 26th to 56th Street.

    “I was supposed to be dead before last Easter," said Valerie Harper about her diagnosis of cancer in the lining around her brain.  Harper's indomitable spirit and the support from fans of her character 'Rhoda' in the 1970s hit series 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' has kept her going. "It’s a tasty headline," said Harper about the magazine where the inaccurate report was made.
