Joliet Central Symphonic Band Nears Fundraising Goal to Perform at New York’s Lincoln Center—Help Still Needed

The Joliet Central Symphonic Band is just $10,000 away from reaching their fundraising goal that will allow them to perform on Monday, March 23, 2020, at New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, home of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and one of the most renowned concert halls in the world.  The band was invited to perform based on an audition submitted to the artistic committee in New York.

In order to attend, the Joliet Central band program must raise money to cover transportation, hotels, meals, registration, tickets, equipment rental, and other costs associated with the four day-three night trip to New York with over 115 band members. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students, and performing at Lincoln Center is on many musicians’ bucket list.

Band members have worked diligently fundraising for their trip with candy bar sales, mattress sales, and Charitymania ticket sales. Two music festivals were held in the fall to help raise money for the trip.  In addition, many generous donors have provided funds.
