The Nashville Community High School band and choir are traveling today to New York City to play at the prestigious Carnegie Hall.
Anyone who is interested in sending off the students can show their support by participating in an uptown parade beginning at 11 a.m.
The NCHS concert band will be participating in the National Festival Chorus event on April 4, where instrumental ensembles from all over the country will perform a once-in-a-lifetime experience as part of Manhattan Concert Productions’ Symphonic Series.
The musicians are expected to perform a diverse program, spanning from Schubert and Mahler to contemporary artists such as Samuel Hazo and James Swearingen.
The NCHS choir will also participate in a choir event at Carnegie Hall that same day.
