London New Years Day Parade
  • Our band has been recognized for its superior
  • The Marching Band has been selected to
    participate in the 2008 London New Years Day
  • It is a huge honor for our band to be selected
    from high schools around the world!
  • This is an enormous accomplishment and
    recognition of our students hard work.

  • Over the last 22 years the Parade on New Years
    Day and the week long Festival of concerts and
    other performances have developed into one of the
    greatest events in the world.

  • Not only has the Parade and Festival provided
    magnificent performance opportunities for
    hundreds of groups of young Americans, but also
    the carefully constructed Performance Tour that
    is provided by the events International partner
    Youth Music for The World - has given a memorable
    and life changing educational experience to more
    than 100,000 young Americans over the history of
    the event.

  • Londons New Year Day Parade and Festival is an
    official event of the City of Westminster, and is
    supported by Her Majesty The Queen, who annually
    instructs her Lord Lieutenant for Greater London
    to represent her in the organization and
    operation of the event.

  • Londons New Years Day Parade and Festival is
    also supported by Her Majestys Government, and
    boasts the Prime Minister and the Secretary for
    Media, Culture and Sport as Patrons.

  • Other Patrons include the Lord Mayor of The City
    of Westminster, The Ambassador of the United
    States of America, The Bishop of London, and The
    Archbishop of Westminster. The event is also
    actively supported by all 31 of Londons Boroughs
    Civic Mayors.

  • The Festivals Gala Concerts and other
    performances are given in some of the most
    prestigious venues in London before packed
    audiences of dignitaries and local music lovers,
    and visitors.

  • Londons New Years Day Parade, which is now
    directly comparable in prestige to the Tournament
    of Roses, and Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade is
    performed in front of more than half a million
    people on a 2.2 mile route that includes The
    Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, and
    Piccadilly Circus.
  • Groups of performers and entertainers from all
    over the world take part, and the television
    program of the event is beamed via 550 television
    stations worldwide to an estimated audience of
    two hundred and twenty million people.

Youth Music of the World Organization
  • Londons New Years Day Parade and Festival works
    in exclusive partnership with the Youth Music of
    The World Organization for the creation and
    provision of the Performance Tour arrangements
    for groups appearing in the Festival.

Not a Travel Company
  • Youth Music of The World is not a travel company,
    and no travel company can offer you participation
    in Londons New Years Day Parade and Festival.

Dedicated Staff Member
  • The organization pioneered the concept of each of
    our performing groups having a dedicated member
    of our team stay with them and live each
    program with their group as a permanent, ever
    present, resource.

A Week Long Program
  • Over many years we have developed a week long
    program that gives a near perfect balance of
    performance and rehearsal time, educational
    sightseeing bus tour - time, unstructured time
    in which to plan educational and cultural visits
    of specific personal interest and some pure fun

  • Whenever motor coach transportation is included
    in our program it is provided on luxury, modern,
    motor coaches, fully certified to the highest
    levels of industry safety and security and with
    experienced, safe and qualified drivers. Our
    motor coach providers have to submit proof of
    insurance cover to the equivalent of ten million
    dollars. Modern British motor coaches have large
    panoramic windows, state of the art sound
    systems, passenger seat belts (compulsory) and
    have effective heating and ventilation. All motor
    coaches provide a smoke free environment.

Tour Guides
  • Our guides are all fully qualified members of the
    Guild of Guide Lecturers and proudly display
    their qualification by wearing the famous Blue
    Badge. We have carefully selected all of the
    guides that we use from this elite Guild,
    choosing those guides who we feel can best relate
    to, and who can provide stimulating and
    interesting commentary for young Americans.

Youth Music uses only the worlds best airlines,
each a major scheduled carrier, and each
operating to the highest safety criteria in the
aviation industry.
Airline Travel
  • All passengers will travel in Coach Class. On
    International trans-Atlantic flights this always
    includes at least one main meal, and one snack
    meal in each direction, complimentary soft
    drinks, and a full range of in-flight
    entertainment including movies, TV programs, and
    audio channels.

  • The selection of accommodations is crucially
    important to the success of the Performance Tour
    program. All of our hotels are carefully selected
    and rigorously checked, at least twice a year, to
    ensure that they meet the standards and
    requirements of our traveling performance groups.

Meals - Breakfast
  • Breakfast is provided every day in the groups
    hotel. It is offered in a buffet style and
    includes the following items A selection of
    fresh fruit juices, cereals, pastries and breads
    such as croissant, pain au raisin, pain au
    chocolate, brioche, bread rolls, baguette, and
    bread for toasting. Butter, low fat spread, and
    preserves are also included. There will be a
    selection of fresh and preserved fruit, as well
    as yogurts of various types. In addition there
    will be a selection of cheeses and hams to
    complete an enhanced and substantial Continental
    Breakfast. Hot beverages of tea, coffee, and hot
    chocolate will be available, as will hot and cold

Meals - Dinners
  • The program includes two dinners to be taken in
    the hotel, one of which we recommend should
    always be taken on the day of arrival in London.
    The meals in the hotel will generally be served
    buffet style and will consist of two courses, an
    entrée and a dessert, with a salad available as a
    side dish. A considerable range of menu choice
    will be given to allow group leaders to select
    the most suitable menus for their groups.

To ensure that a main meal can be enjoyed every
day as part of the program, four sets of vouchers
which can be used at a vast range of restaurants
in London, including many of the popular fast
food or express dining restaurants that are
popular with North American students. We
guarantee that there will be a considerable
number of restaurants within a few moments walk
of the hotel that will accept the vouchers. The
hotels themselves also accept the vouchers. By
using the voucher scheme we have found that we
can give todays North American students exactly
what they want, providing unrivalled choice in
type of food and style of service. We have
found vouchers to be infinitely more satisfying
than offering a set menu for every dinner, and
finding that a high percentage of students do not
care for that with which they are presented.
