As the old saying goes, “how do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice!”
I wrote a while back that the symphonic concert band I play in will be performing at Carnegie Hall on Veterans Day! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and yet another bucket list item for me. The chance to play on the stage at Carnegie Hall is beyond my wildest dreams!
As it turns out, it also takes money! We’re looking to raise funds to offset costs for the trip. We set up a GoFundMe page for the opportunity. If you are able to do so, please consider contributing a few bucks for us to take this trip!
Thanks for your support!
This morning, I received an exciting piece of news!!!
It seems that November will be an exciting time for me! No sooner after I return from speaking at PASS Summit, I will be heading down to New York City. I found out this morning that the band in which I perform has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall on Monday, November 11!!!
This is exciting for me! I can’t think of a single musician who wouldn’t want to perform at Carnegie Hall!!!
I’m writing this article to (1) make this exciting announcement, and (2) to also ask for help. We are seeking donations to help defray the costs of our trip. If you would like to donate, here is a letter that discusses our fundraising efforts. Any little bit helps. Help us get to Carnegie Hall!!! Apparently, it takes more than practice to get there — it also takes funds!
