Mabelvale Middle School Choir Headed to Carnegie Hall

The Mabelvale Middle School Choir, led by Choir Director Matthew Farr, has been selected to perform at historic Carnegie Hall in New York City. The trip is set to take place March 28-31, 2015, with the performance scheduled for March 30, 2015. In order to make this dream a reality, the students are seeking donations and/or sponsors to fund the trip. Donations may be made at http://www.gofundme.com/983zjw. All proceeds directly impact the Mabelvale Choir Program. 

"This trip will be a fun and exciting educational experience for our choir students that supersedes all others, "said Farr. "The students will work with professional conductors and singers as well as attend master classes that will enhance their individual vocal abilities," he added.
