UNI marching band excited to perform in Rome

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

This winter break, the UNI Panther Marching Band is traveling to Italy to perform in Rome's New Year's Day parade.

Every other year the band looks to travel somewhere special during winter break. 

Two years ago, the band went to London. 

Their performance there caught the attention of the Rome City Council.

This year is special for the band. It's their director's last year. So they're performing some of his favorite songs during the parade. 

For some of the students, this will be their first time flying.

The band will be in Italy for nine days. They plan on leaving December 28th, and touring different parts of the country
