Carnegie Hall

By Ms. Lori Nakano on March 14, 2017

Our band was fantastic on stage at Carnegie Hall today!  They fought through a blizzard with their instruments in hand to walk a block to Carnegie Hall this morning.  They opened the show with a blast and received a standing ovation by all!  Bravo to Mr. Fanning and Mr. Morita for providing an experience of a lifetime for our kids!  Our band sounded like they belong there.
