PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A local school choir is rehearsing for their big performance this weekend in Hawaii.

Twenty-eight choir students ranging from second to eighth graders from Faubion School in north Portland were chosen to represent the state of Oregon at the 75th Pearl Harbor Memorial Day Parade.

“It's really awesome for our group and for us to experience this and travel and experience things because for me personally, I've never traveled anywhere but my hometown and Portland, so this is a big opportunity for us and it'll represent a lot,” said seventh grade choir student Ladia Hankins. 

The kids raised $25,000 to cover the cost of the trip.
