This morning, the KBND Morning News was given a musical treat. Members of the Summit High School band came in to play several of their favorite songs. Spokesman for the group, Scott Robson, says they have been invited to play at Carnegie Hall in New York and need to raise money to get there. So they are on the stump to let people know about their efforts. "Tomorrow (Thursday) night they're having a free concert at Summit High School at 7:30 p.m. And you can actually hear the band that's going to be going to Carnegie Hall in April 2011.   We will also be selling tickets to the jazz concert on Sunday at the Riverhouse. Cameron Clark has generously donated part of the proceeds of each ticket sale from the Summit High School kids to help us with our the fundraiser." Robson says the kids are thrilled to be one of 18 high school bands chosen in the nation to perform. The 44 band members need to raise about $70,000. They are about a third of the way there. Again, they will have a free performance at Summit High Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.; The concert is free, but they will gratefully receive any donations at the door.
