LCS 6th Grade and Junior High Choirs had an amazing opportunity to participate in a workshop and concert with the American Boychoir at First Presbyterian Church Lakeland on Monday, February 29th. The Boychoir performs regularly with world-class orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The American Boychoir is frequently invited to join internationally-renowned artists on stage, and the list of collaborators reflects the extraordinary range of the ensemble: from great classical artists such as Jessye Norman and Frederica von Stade to jazz legend Wynton Marsalis and pop icons Beyoncé and Sir Paul McCartney. As an icon of American musical excellence, the Boychoir has been invited to sing for every sitting U.S. President since John F. Kennedy. Boys in fourth through eighth grades, reflecting the ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of the United States, come from across the country and around the world to pursue a rigorous musical and academic curriculum at the American Boychoir School in Princeton, New Jersey.
This was an amazing opportunity for our students to rehearse and perform with an internationally-acclaimed group of students of their own age. We are very thankful to Dr. Dan Gordon, First Presbyterian Church, and the American Boychoir for providing this experience for our students.
