High school students in Plymouth will be able to use their music skills at a statewide event in May.

According to a press release from the Plymouth Community School Corporation, 12 students will be marching in the Indiana All-Star Marching Band. The ensemble will be performing on Memorial Day weekend in Indianapolis as part of the 500 Festival Parade.

The parade – which takes place the night before the Indianapolis 500 – has been an annual event since 1957.

Students joining the All-Star Band from Plymouth are made up of five sophomores, three seniors, and a few freshman and juniors.

The school says more than 300-thousand spectators will likely attend the parade. The event is also televised.
