Hendersonville High School's Band of Gold brought in the new year thousands of miles from home. The band marched through London, England in the city’s New Year’s Day Parade. Students had been preparing for this honor since they received the official invite, in-person, from the great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, Duncan Sandys. London’s New Year Day Parade and the London International Choral Festival are both sponsored by the Lord Mayor of London. Students enjoyed exploring different sites around the United Kingdom. The band and choir are under the leadership of Dr. Jeff Phillips, Sara Hissner and Elizabeth Evans.
