      NYC was awesome. Visiting iconic, historic locations. Seeing my child onstage at Carnegie Hall, was the icing on the cake. Only thing I would change is being able to acquire a professional photo and video of performance.

        Comments about WorldStrides Festival at Carnegie Hall, Elite performing opportunities:

        I felt that the choir director was not given enough details of the trip from the company and left a lot to figure out herself. We were promised dinner each night and the night of Carnegie there was no dinner. I think the schedule needed to allow more free time for the kids to explore or add an additional day. The kids were exhausted and voices hurt by Carnegie day. May kids ran out of money quickly because it was not told how much a New York breakfast or lunch could cost. There was a lot of bus confusion after the performance and our kids were left to stand in the 30 degree weather with no coats. I do think that the directors were awesome and handled the kids well. And the performance was a lifetime memory. But I feel for the price we paid there should have been more organization, meals, and/or more sights to see.
