The concert celebrates the first year of the tuition-free choral academy that serves at-risk girls from West Philadelphia, Kensington, and Camden.  The concert is an opportunity for the Girlchoir to sing side-by-side with Philadelphia’s top classical vocal artists.

The second half of the concert features special guest, teen jazz pianist, Rocco Fiorentino in an energetic set of familiar tunes. The Vorhees teen has gained national recognition for his advocacy for the blind and his outstanding musical talent. The concert will close with a medley of songs from around the world.
