WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Members of the Mayberry Middle School choir are preparing to take New York City! The group will perform at Carnegie Hall in March after being invited by composer Greg Gilpin.
Danny Darrington, vocal music teacher at Mayberry, spoke with KSN’s Katie Taube about the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for his students on KSN’s noon newscast.
Mayberry is a Title 1 school, meaning a large percentage of students come from low-income families. At a cost of up to $2,000 per student, the school is holding several fundraisers to make sure the cost won’t prevent students from going.
The school is hosting a car show and silent auction on Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s at 207 S. Sheridan, in the school parking lot. The auction items include KU Basketball tickets, gift baskets and travel and spa packages.
