It's a dream come true for Livermore High School musicians! Through high talent and hard work, Livermore High School's Chamber Orchestra and Symphonic Band have been invited to play at Carnegie Hall. The 131-year-old, world-renowned, grand concert facility, is one of the most prestigious venues on earth for both classical and popular music.
The orchestra won a major competition last year and was invited by Carnegie Hall to apply to appear. They are one of 12 groups nationwide to be invited.
But there's a hiccup. It will take $25,000 in tax-deductible donations to make sure all the musicians, regardless of family financial status, can make the trip and since the orchestra and band is the work of many, it's everyone goes or no one goes.
Livermore Music has set up a Go Fund Me as one way to raise the money needed to include everyone. Click here to make a donation and/or read more.
Carolyn McArdle talked about it on the air. Listen below!
