Members of Mt. Vernon High School’s Center Stage Choir recently returned from a trip to New York City that included a performance at the famous Carnegie Hall.
The choir performed alongside nearly 275 other singers and was awarded opportunities to work with Dr. Daniel Bara, Director of Choral Activities at the University of Georgia, and Dr. Deanna Joseph, Director of Choral Activities at Georgia State University, for 10 hours of rehearsal time throughout the weekend.
“It was certainly an honor to perform for a full house at one of the most famous performance hall in the nation, and they have worked hard to do so,” Center Stage Choir Director Leigh Anderson stated. “This trip is a milestone for our choral program, and I believe it is the first of many incredible performance tours we will have in the future.”
In addition to rehearsing and performing, the group also saw a Broadway show and toured Manhattan, including tours at Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall.
