In reality, it takes much more. Many thanks to Karen Anderson, who coordinated the entire trip, all of the parent chaperones, students, and Mr. Rudolph for all of the hard work preparing for the experience. Performing in that venue was amazing... the history is vast and to think about all the performers who have graced the stage is humbling.
We did so many things while in New York...from the Statue of Liberty to the 9-11 museum...museums and a broadway show...it was a jam-packed trip!
We got outstanding reviews from the evaluators, who praised the band for it's sound and technical prowess. Hearing the group in one of the world's finest concert halls was simply spectacular.
Thanks to all the parents who attended...it was great to have an audience for the concert. Thanks to everyone who made it possible for their students to attend. It was truly a life-changing experience!
