Eighteen students from the Los Alamos High School Choir sojourned to New York City to join other high school musicians from around the country to form a 150 member National Festival Chorus and perform at the Lincoln Center.
The local LAHS Choir Parent Booster Club organized and sponsored the five-day trip where the singers rehearsed under Karen Kennedy, a Master Conductor from The University of Miami, director of Choral Studies.
Students recognized the value of working with a “Super” conductor saying, “She made us want to work hard, sing our hearts out and do our best. It felt great to sound so good.”
The rehearsal schedule cumulated in a well-orchestrated March 29 exposé in Alice Tully Hall of the Lincoln Center.
The performance featured five pieces by the students, the Masterworks Festival Chorus and the New York City Chamber Orchestra.
In between rehearsals the students took in the sites, sounds and tastes of the Big Apple including a Broadway Musical, Central Park, Natural History Museum and more.
