Ridgeview's High School band performed at Carnegie Hall Tuesday night.
The band was invited to paly at the festival in New York City because of its reputation.
Band Director Dave Sime says the 50 members of the band shared an experience, they'll never forget.
"It was a phenomenal performance. The kids had a wonderful performance and the whole evening was truly magical. Earlier in the day we had an opportunity to do a sound check .. and we did a tuning note and held it . . and the kids eyes got big and they said Whoa!"
The band performed three songs -- Ave Maria, Havendance and Arabian Dances.
"And when we got done on stage, we went to our assigned room and some of the students just started crying with joy .. . and to have a standing ovation. These are memories that will stay with them forever."
Students also got a chance to sightsee in the Big Apple. They went to the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center and the 9-11 Memorial.
