Girls join together in song at CPS Festival!

On March 4, Teaching Artists Anne Dugan and Emily Watkins, along with our Catholic partnership schools Choir, attended a Choral Festival in Chatham, NJ.  We attended this fun festival upon invitation of the New Jersey Youth Chorus’ Sola Voce 6th-8th grade girls choir group, which is under the direction of Tara Postigo.Screen Shot 2017-03-16 at 7.57.15 PM.png

Our choir sang both combined and individual pieces. Songs we sang together included: “Oye!” by Jim Poupoulis and “The Best Day of My Life,” by American authors.

Each choir sang their own repertoire as well, so it was a great educational experience for all the girls to get a taste of singing and listening to different musical styles.

Not only did the girls sing at this festival, but they made new friends, played games, and did some folk dances. The girls had a great time! By the end of our eventful day, the girls were TIRED but full of happiness and wearing their best smiles!
