Week of September 26th
International Day of Peace
Last Wednesday, September 21 members of Chorale, Men's Choir, and Women's Choir participated in a International Peace Day by participating in the AVoice4Peace project. Our choirs joined via the Nairobi Chamber Chorus (Kenya) and school children from the Nairobi area in singing Ukhutula a traditional African Peace Song. Our experience of joining in song with choirs from around the world was described by some of our students as "surreal". This project was a unique opportunity to connect with other cultures and communities as we strive to create global citizens. Some pictures from our experience are above and we looked forward to sharing more with you at our Fall Concert on October 4. If you'd like to see the video of participation on Wednesday it is available HERE. Our video feed to Kenya was in and out a bit, but you can hear our singers singing with the group in Nairobi.
Do you have what it takes to be the next CHHS singing sensation?
