We are currently raising money to get to NYC for a performance at St. Patrick's Cathedral on 4/24/2020. The trip totals 16,501$ and any help in funding would be amazing.

By the end of this project is that each student involved will have a better understanding of the following: working as a team towards a goal, discipline to learn the challenging music, more focused study habits, better understanding of how to properly practice on his/her own time, as well as with an ensemble. All musical notation (rhythm, pitch, harmony, dynamics, and expressive elements) will be rehearsed and executed properly at the culminating performance.
