Students from Southmoore High School get a very special invitation that will take them overseas.

The school's band will be playing in London's New Year's Day Parade and Festival in front of thousands of people including Queen Elizabeth.

The Queen's representative says they're honored to invite the band.

"The honor is when they come," said Roger Bramble, Queen Elizabeth's Representative. "You know how much work the kids have to do and their parents and the band supporters and so forth. So, we think it's a really big deal."

The band will have a while to raise the money for their trip, they're not scheduled to play until 2016.

The band's director says it's double the size of Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.
