"It`s been a frustrating time for the students and the parents and staff we have here in Philadelphia -- but they`ve handled it well and we`re all excited to get moving (Thursday)," Jonathan Bell, Germantown High School band director said.

They will get on a bus to JFK in New York Thursday at 4:00 a.m. and they should land in Rome at about midnight Friday.

Their first performance is Saturday.
