Concert Choir and Advanced Chorale Trip to NYC
Next spring, Concert Choir and Advanced Chorale will travel to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall! More information is coming soon. For now the trip is about $1,800. We will try to come in under that price, but much depends on locking in flights. Please start saving this summer for the trip! Singing in Carnegie Hall will be an experience that our students remember for the rest of their lives, and we want all students to get the opportunity to participate.
