Baker High Symphonic Band needs community help to fundraise Carnegie Hall trip

BAKER, LA (WAFB) - A high school band is trying to raise the last bit of money to go on a trip of a lifetime.

Baker High School's Symphonic Band is scheduled to play at Carnegie Hall at the end of the month, but it needs the funds to get there.

Right now, band members are asking for help from the community to put the Baker Buffalos in New York City.

"We're just about $15,000 short so we're trying to get our community to come in and help us out and raise those funds," said William Earvin, Baker High's Band Director. "We have a couple of fundraisers left including the Big Fish Fry on the 24th of March where you can come get a plate for $8. We have plenty of tickets available so please call the school or talk to some of the stakeholders around the City of Baker so that they can help us out."

The Big Fish Fry will take place on Saturday, March 24 beginning at 11 a.m.

The symphonic band will perform March 31 at 11:30 am at Carnegie Hall.
