"The Macy's parade is a completely different event," said band director Kevin Ford. "It's an iconic event for our country. It's an opportunity to represent our state, our community and our school system."

WLRN-TV producer Mia Laurenzo said the students' talents and professionalism impressed her.

"My jaw dropped and the hair raised on my arms," said Laurenzo, remembering a recent concert.

"Journey to the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade" will likely air nationally on PBS stations.
