Sound of USD Marching Band Invited to London
Lord Sandys, who holds citizenship in the U.S. and United Kingdom, plans to present a formal letter of invitation to USD at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 22 in the main hallway of the College of Fine Arts.
In March each year the Lord Mayoralty decides upon a select number of groups that it wishes to visit in the U.S. in connection with London’s New Year’s Day Parade -- one of the most important events in Westminster's annual calendar.
Members of the USD marching band will play Jan. 1, 2017, on the historic parade route that includes Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, with a finale arena adjacent to the Palace of Westminster, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. More than 500,000 people will view it from the streets and over 280 million people around the world will be able to watch it on TV. More than 100 USD students will be in London for a week and see many of the sites.
