Student musicians from Canutillo Middle School have the opportunity to perform at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in New York City and have been working hard to raise funds to get there.

The Canutillo Middle Honor Band qualified to play at Carnegie Hall by earning a Gold First Place Finish at the WorldStrides Heritage competition in California this past May.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students and we want to make sure they have the chance to experience this honor," said Christian Rodriguez, the band director at Canutillo Middle. "We know that with the support of the community, we will be able to give each one of these students the experience of playing on a world-class stage like Carnegie Hall."

Canutillo Middle has been busy holding fundraisers all year and still need the public’s help. The group has partnered with the El Paso Community Foundation to collect donations that will help for travel expenses to New York. To donate, visit
