Seven Elk County Catholic High School band students will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on Dec. 7 — the 75th anniversary of the tragic Pearl Harbor attacks that brought the United States into World War II.
This is the last major anniversary of the attack that event organizers feel living survivors will still be present and able to participate in. As such, the state of Hawaii projects this to be the largest event of its kind in its history.
Every year, parade organizers strive to have a high school band represent each battleship state. Elk County Catholic students were chosen through an audition process along with 55 other students from across McKean, Cameron and Elk counties to be a part of the Pennsylvania Honors Band.
