Eisenhower High School band perform symphony tonight
YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Eisenhower High School's Orchestra and Jazz bands are performing a symphony tonight in Yakima to help raise money for a trip overseas. Before the symphony they're holding a dinner and silent auction.
The symphony is called "Harry Potter" and uses music from the first five movies. Money from the event will benefit the instrumental programs at Eisenhower. Specifically, it goes toward the band's trip to Paris in 2013. It will cost three thousand dollars per person, and this is the band's largest fundraiser for that trip. Band supporters say every contribution toward the band counts.
"The students that would like to go, they have the opportunity now to start raising money and … this will be our major fundraiser for this particular trip," says Band Parent Lisa Sargent.
The event starts at six tonight at the Seasons Performance Hall on Naches Avenue with a spaghetti dinner and silent auction. The concert itself starts at 7:30. Tickets will be available at the door. It's ten dollars for adults and five for children.
