Corrina's Tour of Schools Reflections...

Chorale performing at Iroquois Junior/Senior High School

Our first Tour of Schools combined with Cantare went great! This was my third Tour of Schools and I think that combining it with Cantare was an awesome idea. The audience participated a lot, especially at Iroquois High School. The day was filled with new experiences that I believe will help us thrive in the future. I’m very excited to perform with Cantare at another Tour of Schools. - Corrina Barnett

Chris gives his thoughts on the day...

The Young Men performing at Wayne Middle School

Today YPC was very fun! It was my first Tour of Schools, so I thought it was very interesting. It was fun and tiring, but I enjoyed every second of it. I enjoyed our last stop was the best. I could hear more of all of us. Everyone had great facial expressions, and moved around a lot. I could tell that everyone including the crowds enjoyed the performances throughout the day! - Chris Dyleski, Young Men's

Tamara's Thoughts...

Cantare performing at JoAnna Connell

Today was the best day of my life since I joined YPC!

Today we went to perform at three different schools! The first one was JoAnna Connell an elementary school, the second was a middle school called Wayne, the third school was Iroquois High School. It was a lot of fun because we got to perform and sing with Concert Chorus and the Young Men. Since I joined this group I have made a lot of friends. I will never forget this day!! - Tamara Carrier, Cantare

Choristers are all smiles on Tour of Schools day!!!

YPC's Tour of Schools was a tremendous success!!! The concerts throughout the day were very well-received, and all of the audience members were thrilled to participate in a chorus of the Young Men's rendition of "Sweet Caroline". The Concert Chorus wowed the audiences with "Ain't No Grave Can Hold Me Down", and Cantare sang "Uma Familia" and related our YPC idea that we are all one big family through their song. We are so proud of all of our choristers!
