BUFFALO, NY - Against all odds members of the South Park High School Jazz Band are headed to New York City.
The twenty five students will be guests of the Jazz at Lincoln Center music education and jazz heritage organization.
They will leave for the Big Apple on May 18th, and will attend a concert by the world renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra under the direction of Wynton Marsalis.
A visit to Times Square, the 9/11 memorial, and real New York style pizza will round out the trip.
Channel Two Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke spent some time with the band as they rehearsed for their trip, and learned about the pride they have for their school.
