The Valley High School and Valley Southwoods orchestras are going to England and Wales to perform.

The trip runs from March 13th through the 22nd.

Forty-five schools from around the world were selected to participate. Each school chosen for the trip had an Olympic athlete as alumni.

For the West Des Moines schools it is gold medal gymnast Shawn Johnson.

Some of the highlights of the trip include visiting the houses of Parliament in London and learning more about William Shakespeare and the Beatles.

The group will have four performances during the tour.
