Davis, Jon Bodenschatz, James Bair (in back), Jacob Onoffrey, and R.J. Valerio on Sept. 28, 2018, after inviting the band to march in the 2020 London New Year’s Day Parade.

The Deputy Lord Mayor of London, Councillor Robert Davis, paid a visit to Hempfield Area High School in late September to invite the Spartan marching band to participate in the 2020 London New Year’s Day Parade.

The parade is among the world’s largest, with nearly twice as many participants as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and is broadcast to 280 million homes around the world.

School officials arranged a ceremony for Davis to extend the official invitation to band students.
