When asked what some of their favorite things about the choir were, students responded. “My favorite thing,” one student said, “is the sense of family we have every time I walk into the room.” Another responded- “being around talented people, who are very accepting.” One student remarked on how amazing it was that he was “surrounded by amazing people all of the time- and realizing that I am one of those people. Being in the Chorale makes my day, every day.” It isn’t just amazing music and talent that makes the Chorale special. What makes the Chorale special is that we all are able to make beautiful music together every day- and we would love to have you join in.
