The Auburn University marching band will be heading to the nation's capital next week.
The 320-member band has been selected to participate in the 55th Presidential Inaugural Parade following the swearing-in-ceremony of President George Bush. Auburn band director Rick Good describes the January 20th event as quote -- "a once in a lifetime opportunity." The A-U band is the only one from Alabama invited. Another group of Alabamians -- the Mobile Azalea Trail -- will also participate in inaugural activities.
