Made up of 87 students and led by teacher Johnetta Smith, the group would perform in Philadelphia on Saturday, May 21, then travel to Annapolis, Maryland, to perform alongside the U.S. Naval Academy ensemble May 22.

While at Annapolis, the band will not only perform but receive a clinic from a Navy conductor.

“They’re representing Massachusetts at this event, and it doesn’t get any better than that,” School Committee member John Monfredo said.
