In the spring of my senior year in high school, I was given the opportunity to sing at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City with my advanced choir group, Select Treble. My choir and I were able to sing with so many other choirs from different schools around the country (and even Canada!). Even if we didn’t know each other, song was able to unify us in a matter of days as we performed for each other and with each other. Not only was I able to witness the unity that music can bring, but my friends and I were able to go to the Broadway production of Anastasia, visit the Lincoln center, the 9/11 memorial, and the One World Observatory tower. All in all, I loved being able to visit New York, a city teeming with life and energy. Most of all, I loved being able to sing with my friends about meaningful, unifying topics.
