The opportunity of a lifetime some might say…the chance to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. This was a dream come true for the students of Cocoa High’s Chorus, when they learned they had been invited to to represent the state of Florida at the 2019 "Fall Sing: Remembering 9/11."
Raising money to cover the $85,000 travel cost seemed a bit daunting, but with an opportunity of this magnitude, CHS music director Dr. Misty Martinez and Principal Rachad Wilson were determined to help these students make it to the Big Apple and show the world the level of talent and dedication.
As word spread, so did the community’s interest and support. It took months of hard work, performances and practice, but the Cocoa High Chorus reached their fundraising goal! They departed for New York City on Saturday, October 12.
