"To walk down Pennsylvania Avenue and be a part of that celebration, that's what America is all about," said band instructor Kevin Pollack. "No matter what your political leanings are, you're celebrating a change in power and a new president and that's what we do in this country."

The band's Inauguration Day playlist pays homage to the Keystone State including costumed characters like Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross, reported WPXI. [[37088324, C]]
