The upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama is a hot ticket. But one lucky group of teenagers in Fergus Falls will be there for sure.

The Fergus Falls High School marching band was chosen by the Presidential Inaugural Committee to be one of the units in the parade on January 20, 2009, when President-elect Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th President of the United States.

Head director of the marching band, Scott Kummrow, talked to Tom Crann about the band's reaction, how they got selected and their plan for the performance.
