Playing Carnegie Hall is one of those things that's a big deal if you're an amateur, but once you realize it's available for rent, suddenly "playing Carnegie Hall" loses its sheen. It's a nice venue, though.

Reminds me of the old joke.

A tourist stops a New Yorker on the street and asks for directions.
"USS Intrepid?" says the New Yorker, "That way" and he points off to the left.
"Statue of Liberty?" he goes on, "That way" and he points off to the right.
"Carnegie Hall?" he stops for a moment and thinks, "Practice, Practice, Practice."

Good On Band, & on Director for videoing them for audition!  Spouse Plumbicon & I both sing, so natch I approve of this! Votied for it along with someone else, simultaneously. Also owned by 10 cats, which leads directly to this below:

How much did that "secret tape"cost each parent? New York isn't free you know and aren't there laws against secretly taping students? It's the letter of the law not the spirit.

"We guessed it would take about $125,000 to cover everything," he said.
Since December 2011, the band has raised about $114,000, with a "big chunk" coming from alumni and businesses, he said. Students held benefit concerts and carnivals, along with writing solicitation letters to local businesses. They sold chocolate bars, selling a majority of them outside of church after Mass.
"We had a few students pay for their whole trip just selling chocolates," Yamashiata said.

If you're going to tell an old joke, at least tell it right: "How do I get to Carnegie Hall?" "Practice, practice, practice." Keep the joke simple. Your version is basically saying "Can you give me directions to Carnegie Hall?"  "Practice, practice, practice."  Doesn't make sense.
