Choral Festival At Carnegie Hall + Giveaway

This contest has officially ended.  A huge New York thank you to all who participated, and congrats to our winners, Elise and Shayla!  Stay tuned for more exciting giveaways!

New York City is no stranger to beautiful buildings.  From Rockefeller to the Flatiron to the Empire State, architecture is truly one of our great city’s strong suits.  One of my favorite buildings on the inside, however, is none other than the illustrious Carnegie Hall.



Being a member of any show at Carnegie is truly something magical.  That’s why we’re delighted to be partnering with the fabulous institution and offering you tickets to be part of the audience at the choral festival “The Sounds of War and Peace“, happening over Martin Luther King weekend.  A pair of tickets (and fabulous swag bags!) will be given away for each show:
