    NAMM, Sesame Street, and Music For All Create Float for 2009 Rose Parade
    NAMM has announced that plans are underway to create a float for the 2009 Tournament of Roses Parade that represents a "musical extravaganza." Overflowing with live music and depictions of how much fun playing music can be for everyone, the NAMM float will be a special feature for the overall parade theme of "Hats Off to Entertainment."

    The108-year-old organization is returning to the parade for the sixth year in a row and is once again showcasing its message to the general public about the powerful and proven benefits of playing music for people of all ages.

    The NAMM float is being created in collaboration with "Sesame Street" and Music for All. Sesame Workshop is the nonprofit educational organization behind "Sesame Street" and a well-known advocate for integrating music into its program to help children viewers learn and grow. This is the fourth year that "Sesame Street" has collaborated with NAMM on a float for the Tournament of Roses Parade.
