Dickson High School Trying To Fund Carnegie Hall Performance

Posted: Updated:

DICKSON, Tenn. – Choir students at a high school in Dickson County have found themselves in danger of not being able to raise enough money to perform at one of the nation's most prestigious performing halls.

Choir members from Dickson County High School have been invited to perform at the illustrious Carnegie Hall in New York City. The students have experienced difficulties funding the nearly $70,000 trip.

The 72-student choir was invited to perform at the iconic venue by an alumnus of the school, who is now teaching music in New York City.

"One thing I've always wanted to do is take my students to Carnegie Hall," said Cindy Freeman, who directs the school choir with her husband, Michael Meise.

Freeman has been teaching for 40-years and said it has always been a dream to take her students to perform there.

The students have raised $30,000 so far, but need an additional $40,000 cover travel, lodging and food expenses for the 773-mile trip.

The students have until December 1 to raise the rest of the money.
