NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK – The Cocoa High School chorus took the Big Apple by storm as students performed beautifully during their once in a lifetime chance to sing at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall.
Cocoa High was the only school selected to represent the state of Florida at the 2019 “Fall Sing: Remembering 9/11.”
The event took place last on October 14.
Early last Saturday morning, some 50 students, along with chorus director, Dr. Misty Martinez, principal Rachad Wilson, and other adult chaperones, boarded buses and received a police escort to Orlando International Airport.
Students spent the weekend sightseeing and exploring the city, including the September 11 Memorial and Museum, the Statue of Liberty, a twilight dinner cruise and Broadway show, and a surprise visit to Carlo’s Bakery of “Cake Boss” fame, where they received a cake with a 3-D image of their school mascot, the Cocoa tiger.
For many of these students, this was their first trip out of state. Their time in NYC was chronicled on social media.
The chorus spent the last few months holding concerts and various fundraisers to raise the more than $80,000 necessary to cover all costs associated with the trip. Congratulations on this well-deserved and well-earned opportunity.
