BTW band prepares for trip to NYC

BTW band members given once in a lifetime opportunity to perform in NYC

Shreveport, LA - Bobby Davis is ready to pack his bags and head to New York City.
"I've never been nowhere big like this, so good experience, good educational experience as well."
Davis and the Booker T. Washington High School band will be heading to the Big Apple in April and will be bringing along with them some big sounds.
The students were invited to the World Strides On Stage program in NYC.  Emmanuel Hudson, the band director at BTW says the group will perform at a national concert band festival with the top bands across the country.
"This is bigger than Booker T. Washington.  This is for Caddo Parish, for Shreveport, Louisiana.  This is putting our music programs in the spotlight."
8th grader, Jamie Smith is looking forward to representing her school.
"It's an amazing feeling to be a part of Booker T. Washington's band cause you know Booker T. Washington has so much history."
Now these students will be adding on to history, one note at a time.
The BTW band is trying to raise $50,000 for their trip to New York.  You can drop off donations at the high school on Milam Street.  
The alumni association set up a fundraiser page on gofundme
All money must be raised by March 10th.
