BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Big things are in light for Cocoa High School. After receiving ‘overall superior’ for many of their high school choral MPAs, Music Performance Assessments, this group of students has made a name for themselves.
This special batch of singers were more than talented enough to make it to Florida’s Vocal Association’s State MPA, a first for their chorus in almost over 40 years.
Since then, they have been formally invited to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York City, October 12-15, to perform at the “National Fall Sing Remembering 9/11,” an opportunity only so few receive.
In being the only school selected to perform in the state of Florida, this trip, for many students, is their first. This once in a lifetime opportunity is a very exclusive event that only the best of the best are invited.
Musical lead, Dr. Misty Martinez, and her group of 50 students are in awe of the request of their talents, but the only thing necessary for them to attend is the money needed for this trip.
They have the gift, but holding them back is the financial aspect.
The total for 50 students and six chaperones is $85,000, which is $1,500 per person. Of that amount, $33,000 has been raised with the help of the community and with their many fundraising efforts.
In their pursuit to further raise money, the Cocoa High chorus is holding a fundraising concert on August 10th at the Cocoa Village Playhouse at 2 pm.
Tickets are priced at only $25 and can be purchased through the Cocoa Village Playhouse box office. For more information on how to donate, visit Cocoa High School Chorus’ GoFundMe page.
