The Elsinore Middle School Tiger Band from Lake Elsinore, California, received AMAZING news! They were the only middle school to earn a spot in the New York Invitational Music Festival in the famed Carnegie Hall, April 9, 2020! This is a dream come true for our kids and they have worked years for this opportunity to showcase their talent!
The Elsinore Middle School Band is known for their award winning program which includes a Concert Band, Parade Band, Orchestra and a Jazz Band. They consistently win Unanimous Superior ratings and recently won, through the NAMM Foundation, a national recognition for best school music program! An important value that an EMS Tiger learns in our band program is that we use our talent to serve. We use the gift of music to play for a purpose...for people in our community such as veterans, elderly, for city functions and to just make people happy! These kids are leaders and truly deserve this "Once in a Lifetime!"
What makes it even more special for these kids to perform at Carnegie Hall is that many of them rarely have opportunities to leave the city, and many have never been on an airplane, let alone New York City to perform in the world's most renown concert hall!
Please consider making this trip possible for the Elsinore Middle School band students. The trip will cost approximately $2,000 each.
