Crestview High band and chorus hit the road for New York, Tennessee

While the band is preparing to explore the Northeast, 45 members of the high school chorus are putting in overtime rehearsing for performances in Nashville, Tenn.

The legendary stage of the Grand Ole Opry House awaits the girls' Destiny show choir during the April 3 Show Choirs Nationals competition.

"We are the Grand Ole Opry show that night," choral music director Kevin Lusk said.

The next morning the Women's Choir and Chorale perform at Two Rivers Baptist Church during the World Stride Heritage Festivals competition.

"And then we'll go around Nashville and do Nashville stuff," including a backstage tour at the Country Music Hall of Fame and exploring The Hermitage, President Andrew Jackson's plantation, Lusk said.

The chorus will attend a performance by the Midtown Men, original cast members of the hit Broadway show, "Jersey Boys," who will perform with the Nashville Symphony.

The kids will also feast at the Old Spaghetti Factory, located in a classic turn-of-the-century brick commercial building in Nashville's historic riverfront district.
