Stonecrest Mayor Pro Tem George Turner is urging the community to pitch in and help Salem Middle School’s Symphonic Band to help cover the costs of expenses for their trip to Carnegie Hall this month.

Turner said the band is excited about representing the new city of Stonecrest and urged the community to rally around the band by giving a donation. About eight to 10 students still need money to go.

Coordinator Sandra Harris said the band has held several fundraisers and sought donations through a GoFundMe page. The band was lacking about $15,000 for the trip to New York City, where it will perform on March 26.

“We have about 50 students going and we need just a little more to cover the remaining students who do not have all of the money needed,” Harris said.
