New York Trip- Part 2
So today we got an early start and headed for the College of Staten Island in New York to compete in a Performing Arts Consultants Music Festival. After the festival we went to the South Street Seaport for lunch, before heading over to St. Paul’s Chapel and the 9-11 Memorial. The Memorial was extra special that day as we ran into a lady from Massachusetts that was there with a coach bus honoring their lost loved ones. They had over 50 families represented, and they had placed a white flower on each of their names. I didn’t see her, but supposedly Jane Goodall was there. The site was breath taking being able to see the new fountains, some old steel rails from the original structure, and the famous pear tree up close. After the memorial we headed out to Medieval Times for dinner and a show along with our PAC Awards Ceremony. Check out the pictures!
We are proud to announce our achievements at the festival:
Marching Band- 1st Place Silver Medal
Jazz Ensemble- 1st Place Silver Medal
Concert Band- 1st Place Gold Medal (ps… Westboro HS was there and we beat them)
