Wellington High School Principal Mario Crocetti, along with Chorus Director Bradford Chase, have announced that the WHS chorus has been invited to perform at the prestigious Lincoln Center in New York City.
The group will participate in the New York City premiere performance of Rosephanye Powell’s The Cry of Jeremiah as part of the DCINY Concert Series on Saturday, May 10, 2014 over Mother’s Day weekend at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall.
In the letter of invitation, members of the WHS chorus were recognized by the concert organizer for “their dedication to musical excellence” and the high quality of their audition recording.
The students’ experience will include two half-days of rehearsals and clinics, culminating in a performance accompanied by the Distinguished Concerts Orchestra. Tickets for the Lincoln Center performance will be available for purchase in March at www.aboutlincolncenter.org.
To help cover trip-related expenses, the WHS chorus will perform in a benefit concert at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15 in the Wellington High School auditorium.
Tickets to the benefit concert cost $10 and may be purchased from any chorus member, at the door or by e-mailing email@example.com.
In addition to purchasing tickets and attending the benefit concert, anyone wishing to help support the students may take advantage of fundraising opportunities associated with the benefit concert, including program advertising and donating items for a silent auction the night of the benefit concert.
Silent auction items should be delivered (or pickup arranged) by Wednesday, Nov. 13. For more info., e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
