The Zachary High School band is getting their chance to shine on a national stage.
The band will play three songs--My Country tis of Thee, another paying tribute to their home state, and finally their very own school.
Over 80 members have signed up to go, but the ticket isn't cheap—about $900 a student.
So parents, faculty, and the band have been raising money for the past six months.
“We're all band parents trying to make sure these kids go to Washington," said Matt Jones.
