How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice—something the Ole Miss Concert Singers took to heart days ago on a Southwest flight bound for New York City.

In a video submitted by passenger Amanda Davis DeRosa, others on the flight can be seen filming the impromptu performance as the Ole Miss Concert Singers, scattered throughout the plane, follow conductor and director of choral activities Don Trott.

The Concert Singers were invited by Distinguished Concerts International to perform Sunday night at Carnegie Hall in New York City. They performed a “wide range of pieces, including classics, contemporary pieces and Mississippi originals,” according to a university press release.

“My goal is to provide Ole Miss choir students with a comprehensive choral experience, which includes performing in a variety of acoustical environments in historical churches and concert halls,” Trott said in the press release. “Carnegie Hall is certainly the world’s most famous concert hall.”
