Choir tours Italy, Nov. 2016

In November of 2016, 20 students traveled to Italy to perform Mass all over the country. They sang Mass at the Duomo di Siena and at the Basilica di San Francesco in Assisi. Their final singing of Mass took place in the Papal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.The students also performed at a school in Rome before returning to the States. Many members of this choir performed last year at the White House by Presidential invitation for the opening of the holiday season.
 
"Italy was an incredible experience for me because I got to travel to so many new and culturally diverse places. I'll never forget how it felt to perform there, or the memories I made with my fellow classmates on the trip as we bonded." -Amelia A., Upper School Student
 
"My favorite part was going to the Italian high school and meeting new people! I met a girl there and we talk to each other everyday!"  -Kylie A., Middle School Student
