Dr. Joan Simonis, director of the choirs at Woodward High School, has been working since 2014 to raise money to take her students to perform in New Orleans.

The original plan was to take the students last school year but fund-raising fell short. Now, increased costs means another $9,000 needs to be raised in order to make the New Orleans trip a reality.

To make it easier to find donations, Dr. Simonis has created a number of YouTube videos that showcase her students. Take a look:
